Cucumber Yogurt Dip

Cucumber Yogurt Dip by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Are you tired of cheesy, spicy, heavy dips? This cucumber dip is a light and refreshing classic, perfect for summer. Frito Lay sent me this wonderful recipe. I’ve had the recipe in the past with sour cream, but never thought to do it with Greek yogurt. It tastes great, is very simple, and nutritious. We ate this with some classic Lay’s potato chips, but you can enjoy it with any type of chip, cracker, or veggie. I think this would be perfect with a chip and veggie platter to take to a cookout. Frito Lay is also sponsoring a giveaway, you can enter here, and find another great dip recipe.

    My aunt makes it differently.

    Grate cucumber and place in a drainer.

    Whip yogurt.

    Mix in 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder, 1/4 of mustard seed powder and salt/pepper to taste.

    Mix all the ingredients together.

    Eat along with chips, roti, etc.

    Or eat like me, just by it self. It make a very health snack!!!
    For kids eating it like me, add some extra plain yogurt… 1 part this mixed “dip” and 1 part additional plain yogurt. It will dilute the taste of the mustard seeds…

    Let me know you and your children enjoy this one!!!

    What a refreshing dip and a great change from the cheesy-greasy standards! Cucumbers are coming in fast in our garden right now so this would be just perfect.

    I make this type of dip often and quite frankly never thought of presenting it in such a simple and yet pretty way. Thanks for the idea.

    Flavourful wishes,
    Claudia

    The recipe I gave you last month (in the comments of this post) is a family pass down, which I decided to leak to the world here that day. So I expanded the comment I made here and decided to share it my fans and followers of Early Childcare Resources as well… I have posted an expanded explanation of our family recipe – it’s origins and when our family makes it!

    The key is to add a pop of color in your footwear
    selection. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
    Rajpur Road, the hub of the town has become the centre of all
    activities and in the last five years has seen immense growth.
