This easy 3-ingredient Greek Yogurt Salsa Dip makes a creamy bowl of tangy-spicy deliciousness that’s perfect for dipping veggies or drizzling over taco salads. If you’re cooking for one or two people, the small-batch recipe makes just a few tablespoons of dip or salad dressing – so you don’t have to worry about leftovers!
Here’s What You’ll Need
Plain Greek Yogurt: I like to use a low-fat variety because it’s tangy but not too tangy and feels rich without being overwhelming.
Salsa: The thinner consistency of salsa verde makes it easy to mix into the yogurt. Our favorite brand, La Costeña, has loads of flavors from garlic, peppers, and tomatillos. But it is on the spicier side. If you’re looking for a tamer option (that won’t tickle your throat), Herdez makes a tasty mild green salsa.
Lime Juice (or zest): The juice adds a zippy fun flavor and helps to thin out the dip. If the dip is already at your desired thickness, skip the juice and add in some lime zest instead. It’ll perk up the dip without thinning it out!
How to Make Greek Yogurt Salsa Dip
- Stir together 3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of salsa.
- If the dip is too thick, stir in the lime juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.
Yogurt Salsa Salad Dressing
To make a pourable salad dressing I combine the yogurt, salsa, and about 1 tablespoon of lime juice. The total amount of juice needed will really depend on how thick your Greek yogurt and salsa are and how thin you like your dressing.
Don’t be afraid to keep tasting and adjusting the different ingredient amounts until you find what works best for you.
Delicious Ways to Use Your Spicy Dip (or Dressing)
- Spread on a sweet potato veggie wrap or sandwich.
- Dipping anything! Snack veggies, tortilla chips, quesadilla, or even a crispy grilled cheese sandwich.
- Topping baked potatoes and spaghetti squash burrito bowls.
- Drizzling over taco salads, veggie nachos, or a pan of roasted vegetables.
Use your imagination – it’s really hard to go wrong!
