A low-calorie dip that’s way healthier than the storebought kind. This Greek yogurt ranch dip will knock your socks off with it’s incredible flavor and ease of making.
Who doesn’t love a little drizzle of ranch dressing on their salad?
Oh, yeah. I don’t.
I have to be honest. Ever since I was little, I’ve never liked putting dressing on any salad served to me. Call me crazy but I just couldn’t stand it. However, I do love dipping sliced vegetables like carrots and celery into ranch dip.
After switching to real food two years ago, all the processed and bad-for-you salad dressing had to go. Not to mention no more of those seasoning packets that you use to make “homemade dressing”—those are loaded with chemicals and artificial ingredients.
But you know what that meant for me? Two years of no ranch dipped carrots. I think that’s why I’ve been so down lately (probably not).
This Greek yogurt ranch dip is SUPER easy to make. Blend up the herbs, spices, and salt. Pour the powdery goodness over some Greek yogurt. Give it a ‘lil stir. And BAM! You’ve got yourself a ranch dip that will knock your hipster socks off!
Told ya it was easy.
Commencing carrot dipping.
I swear, you guys, this dip? 100% healthy, free of bad-for-you ingredients, and totally delicious. You’ve gotta give it a try. Seriously.
So why Greek yogurt? Well, other than having more than half the fat as sour cream, it has 5 times the protein! And don’t even get me started about mayo. Using Greek yogurt in this recipe seriously cuts down that calorie number, so you can feel good about eating a boatload of it. <– highly recommended
How can you use this dip you ask? Well, I for one LOVE spreading it on quinoa burgers, or any kind of burger for that matter. It makes a good sub for tzatziki in a pinch. And if you’re a champion dipper (like me), carrots, celery, and pita chips are all great choices.
So, whether you’re just looking to save a buck or two on salad dressing, just really wanna get your carrot-dipping on, or have a bunch of hungry kids on your hand—I’m telling ya, this recipe is a keeper.
Here’s the recipe:
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley, divided
- 2 teaspoons dried dill, divided
- 2 teaspoons dried chives, divided
- 1 tablespoon dry buttermilk
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ¾ teaspoon sea salt
- In a small/mini blender, blend together 1 teaspoon dried parsley, 1 teaspoon dried dill, 1 teaspoon dried chives, the dry buttermilk, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and sea salt.
- Place the Greek yogurt in a small bowl. Pour the blended mix on top and stir well to combine.
- Pour the dip into a serving bowl to serve or into a jar to store in the fridge.
This dip looks great, I love incorporating the goodness of Greek yogurt wherever I can!

Oh thank you for this! I hate using those sodium preservative bomb packets. This looks delicious!
I make this all the time but have been cheating and using the packaged ranch mix. I had no idea which spices and herbs to combine to make it myself. Thank you so much for the recipe and for linking it up at the This Is How We Roll Thursday link party!
Looks delicious, will be making this soon! Do you just add the remaining teaspoons of the parsley, dill, and chives when stirring the yogurt with the blended herbs?

This sounds awesome! I’ve been on the prowl for a respectable, delicious ranch recipe. This sure sounds like it! Pinned! Can’t wait to try!
I love this! It looks and sounds delicious! Anything I can do to get away from using all that processed junk! Thanks so much for sharing at Fridays Unfolded!! Featuring you this week
Thanks for your recipe. What do you do with the rest of the herbs, you need 2 teaspoons but then blend only 1 teaspoon of each and then what about the other 1 teaspoon of each left?
This looks so yummy!! I love snap peas and cucumbers dipped in ranch!
Where to find dried buttermilk?

Hi Colleen! You can find dried buttermilk in most grocery stores in the baking aisle.
