Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt, Plain, 16 oz
Dill Pickles, 0.25 cup, chopped or diced
Cucumber (peeled), 1 cup, pared, chopped
Almonds slices (unsalted), 0.5 cup, chopped
Garlic, 3 cloves
Salt, 2 dash
Bay Dill weed, fresh, .25 cup sprigs
*Hint 1: you can use only pickles or only cucumbers if desired, so basically you just want 1.25 cups total for the combination of the two.
*Hint 2: when using dill pickles, make sure they are WELL drained after being chopped if you want your dip to be thicker. You can buy the sandwich sliced pickles and press them in paper towels to remove liquid. If you want it thin like a salad dressing, then leave the pickle juices in.
Grind the fresh garlic and salt until it's like a paste. Stir this together with the chopped items and the yogurt and fresh baby dill. You can eat it immediately, but when you refrigerate it for at least an hour, it gets a little thicker and tastes better.
*Hint 3: Great on most veggies, but especially bell peppers, celery, carrots. Is great with 100% whole wheat pita bread toasted or soft, LaFactory low carb low fat wraps as a spread, and with the Tostitos Light Restaurant Style tortilla chips (which have 1 gram of fat for 6 chips, versus other tortilla chips that have 1 gram of fat PER chip).
