Recipe of the Week: Spicy Greek Yogurt Dip

Over the weekend, Rosemary bought this awesome spicy Greek yogurt dip.  I was impressed with the overall product as it only has 1 gram of sugar and very few ingredients. I started thinking to myself that I could probably find a recipe on line and make it at home.  So here we go!

Spicy Greek Yogurt Sauce


I cup Greek Yogurt
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
* ranch mix


In a small bowl, stir the yogurt with the lemon juice and salt to combine.  Add the paprika and the cayenne.  Stir in 1/4 cup water (or more if needed) to achieve a thin, easy to drizzle consistency.  If you are dipping veggies and not using for a dressing, you may want to omit the water.

Notes: Most of the at home dips contain a packet of hidden valley ranch mix, which is full of processed and un-natural ingredients.  You can easily omit, or perhaps use a Mrs. Dash product to give the dip the ranch flavoring.
