5 stars from 1 rating of Yogurt Dip with Herbs

Healthy Yogurt Dip

Yogurt makes a great base for a dip that can be eaten with veggies, chips, or crackers.

Not only is this dip delicious, but it is also very healthy. Yogurt that has live and active cultures contains good bacteria, which is great for the digestive tract. Yogurt is also a good source of protein and calcium. It is clear that a yogurt-based dip is a healthier choice than the standard store-bought dips or sour cream-based dips.
