I say “again” since I posted the recipe in Live Oaks And Green Onions some time back. It’s the one thing my daughter asks me to make every time she comes home for a visit.

The recipe is a refreshing and flavor-packed creamy dip that’s super easy to prepare. And the best thing is it’s more than just a sauce for immersing. You can use it to dress up your veggies like baked potatoes or even slather it on a sandwich with your favorite meat, cheese, and bread. Or, how about rolled in a tortilla for pinwheels? So many ways to like this dip!

Start by Chopping the Herbs

Fresh herbs and vegetables can be gotten in the grocery store or grown at home. Some stores carry them in jars in the refrigerated produce section, making it convenient to keep on hand in the kitchen. I like growing them in pots by my back door for easy accessibility like my Mamaw used to do in Live Oaks And Green Onions. You should give planting them a try!

Putting the Creaminess in the Fresh Herb Dip

There are 3 well-used items found in my refrigerator. They are mayonnaise, cream cheese, and greek yogurt. It seems we can’t live without them. Together they make this dip smooth and thick.

The Greek yogurt doesn’t last very long in our fridge. One reason is its frequent use in something similar to this Pioneer Woman’s Best Yogurt Parfait Ever Recipe. I have been making it for a while, even before I saw Ree whip it up on the Food Network. The difference is I add stevia instead of the brown sugar-like she does. It’s my guilt-free snack any time of the day.

Along with chopping the fresh dill, green onion, and parsley I press a couple of garlic cloves and add them to the three creamy ingredients.

After giving them a good stir, to combine all the flavors, I cover the container and keep it in the refrigerator, and that’s it! See, I told you it was easy!

This cool and refreshing creamy sauce is more than a dip. It has a greek yogurt base flavored with fresh dill, parsley, green onions, and garlic. 

  • Author: Louisiana Woman
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 24 servings

Ingredients

1  8-ounce block cream cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup Greek yogurt

2 tablespoon chopped green onion

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill

1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

 

Instructions

Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer for a few minutes until it is softened and easy to blend with the other ingredients.

Add the mayonnaise and Greek yogurt mixing until well combined.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients to encorporate.

Pour into a covered container and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Notes

This dip is delicious with fresh veggies, crackers, chips, and even french fries or on a sandwich or in a baked potato.

If using dried instead of fresh herbs, use 1/3 less the amount as fresh because dried herbs are more potent in flavor than fresh ones.
