Middle Eastern yogurt garlic sauce

Chef Nancy Waldeck: In any dip calling for mayo or cream cheese, you can substitute half nonfat Greek yogurt for the ingredient. The yogurt brings a little protein and less fat, and since it’s so creamy, no one will catch your better-for-you secret.


  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 garlic clove, grated

  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • Flaky sea salt

Mix all the ingredients, except for the olive oil, together in a bowl. Drizzle with oil and serve with fresh veggies for dipping.
