Herby Yogurt Ranch Dip

Hi, My name is Megan and I am a dipaholic.

One can often find me staring in the fridge thinking one of two things: “What could I dip into this? Do we have plantain chips?” “What could I dip this into? Stoneground mustard? F*ck yeah.” It’s very child-like [besides the F word] and very un-foodie of me, but it’s who I am. I’m told by my life partner that it’s because I’m from Iowa. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but I’m positive it’s not a compliment.

I also happen to love ranch just as much as I love dip. So, I’m guessing you can probably figure out what my favorite type of dip is, huh? Uh-huh.

Let’s pause for a moment, though, and consider what’s in your typical ranch dip. MSG, soybean oil, modified food starch, disodium iosinate?! I’m stopping there. All you need to make a chemical-free ranch dip is some fresh herbs, a little acid [vinegar!], Greek yogurt and 5 minutes.

The best thing about this dip? It does NOT taste healthy. There’s a time and a place for food to taste healthy, and ranch dip time is not one of those times.

Ready your chicken wings, Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken, celery sticks, gluten-free pretzels (my fave) and whatever else you have in your fridge that resembles a scoop. Herby Yogurt Ranch Dip is about to become a staple.

This dip is full of protein and healthy fats, so for a balanced snack just add a side of veggies or plantain chips to get your carbs in!You can totally skip the fresh herbs if you don’t have them or if you’re in a hurry.
