I always love having some great dip recipes around this time of year. We've got the Super bowl coming in a couple weeks and I make lots of different dip recipes for everyone to snack on.
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST DIP RECIPE
- Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese - I would highly recommend using this instead of regular cream cheese. It is so delicious and adds a different layer of flavor to this dip. It does not come in a box/bar shape like cream cheese. Instead it's inside a small tub.
- Plain Yogurt - I prefer plain yogurt instead of Greek yogurt because I don't care for the sour taste of Greek yogurt. But use whichever you prefer, just make sure it's plain!
- Oregano, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder - These get mixed into the yogurt and cream cheese.
- Feta Cheese
- Sliced Green Onions
- Black Olives
- Cucumbers- Make sure you take the seeds out before chopping. Cut the cucumber in half (the long ways) and then take a spoon and scoop the middle part out that has the seeds. Then go ahead and cut the remaining cucumber.
- Tomatoes - Again, make sure you take the seeds out to avoid too much liquid in the dip.
- Black Olives
Remember that all these amounts listed in the recipe are very adaptable. I've made this dip for years and this is the way we like it. If you prefer more feta cheese then go ahead and add more. Same thing with the cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, etc. Just add more or less if that's what you prefer.
