Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Greek Herb Dip
Here's a light and refreshing Weight Watchers friendly dip made with nonfat Greek yogurt, scallions, garlic, cucumber, and fresh herbs with just 29 calories and 0 WW Freestyle SmartPoints in a quarter of a cup serving.
Enjoy it with fresh vegetables as a healthy snack or appetizer. This skinny herb dip is also delicious dolloped onto baked potatoes.
I first made this dip as a "sauce" to accompany the simple baked lemon chicken thighs, from Nigella Lawson's Nigella Kitchen: Recipes from the Heart of the Home . But as soon as I began combining the ingredients, I immediately thought "dip" and cut up some red pepper strips and cucumber slices to enjoy with it as a healthy afternoon snack.
And truthfully we preferred dolloping it on our baked potatoes more than the chicken.
I used a combination of cilantro and mint, but parsley and dill would work well too. And a little splash of fresh lemon juice wouldn't hurt either.
Are you mad about dips? I am. Dips and spreads are without a doubt my go-to favorites when I need a quick and easy appetizer or snack.
The problem is that lots of them can be high in fat and calories. That's why I decided to create a collection of light and healthy Weight Watchers friendly dip and spread recipes, both savory and sweet.
