You'll find a complete list of ingredients with amounts in the recipe card below. But before we get to the full recipe, here are a few notes about the ingredients.
- plain Greek yogurt. Use a brand that is so thick you can stand a spoon up in it. Feel free to use either full-fat or non-fat Greek yogurt.
- sour cream. Just a tablespoon or two. Sour cream is optional but it helps to soften the sharp tang of some varieties of Greek yogurt.
- lemon juice: freshly squeezed
- fresh dill: or dried dill
- onion powder
- garlic powder: or one small garlic clove, finely minced
- sea salt or Kosher salt
- black pepper
- sweetener: also optional, but a small amount of 0-calorie Monkfruit or sugar helps to take the "bite" out of Greek yogurt.
