This week was a “clean out the fridge” kind of week. (Can anybody else relate? Thanksgiving and holidays requires lots of fridge space!)
I found myself loaded with fresh veggies and a full container of Greek yogurt, among plenty of cheese. So dinner became a glorious hodge-podge of veggies and dip, crackers with cheese and hummus, kale chips, and a small fruit salad. Truthfully, it was delightfully refreshing and filling!
Many summer afternoons in my house are accompanied with veggies and dip. Although this was a wintery day before Thanksgiving, we needed the bright memories of warmer weather.
I sliced up the veggies and was ready to begin my dip. Usually I mix it together in a large bowl. But I have been dying to try out a dip in my new Vitamix Aer container. I dumped in the Greek yogurt along with the lemon juice and olive oil. I’ve found that this container works best when I place the liquids in first.
My favorite part about this veggie dip is the herbs. I mix and match flavors, dump and shake herbs, sprinkle and dash seasonings into the Greek yogurt. Because the yogurt is simply a carrier for fantastic flavors!
If you haven’t used seasoning salt or celery salt, consider purchasing some. I was cautious at first, assuming that I wouldn’t use these seasonings often. You’ll be surprised how easily they blend with other flavors!
Speaking of blending, this dip mixed together perfectly in the Vitamix Aer container. I ran it on medium for about 20 seconds until I visibly saw the ingredients combine. I swiped a carrot through it to note if the seasonings needed adjusting. As I suspected, it needed more dill! Another stir over medium speed and the dip was ready to serve.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1-2 Tbsp dill weed
- Add the lemon juice, olive oil and Greek yogurt to the Vitamix Aer container.
- Add remaining seasonings/ingredients.
- Blend on medium for 20 seconds until fully incorporated.
Adjust the seasonings to suit your needs: add more dill to make this a veggie dip, or lesses the salt to serve with chips or crackers.
