Healthy Ranch Dip & Dressing

If you are serving this for a vegetable dip, keep it as is. If using it to dress a salad, use regular yogurt instead of Greek and whisk in a little milk or olive oil until it thins to your desired consistency. You can play around with the amount of garlic, cutting it to half of a clove to start, particularly if your kids are sensitive to the taste.

  • ½ cup non- or lowfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (regular or light, whatever you have on hand)
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Put the yogurt, sour cream, mayonnaise, chives, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Add a few grinds of black pepper. Whirl until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, finely mince the garlic and whisk all of the ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth. If using this for salad dressing, add a little milk or olive oil until it reaches your desired consistency.
  2. Store in the fridge.
