This yogurt dip or dressing is rich and flavorful but much lighter than expected. It takes seconds to make. These days Greek yogurt is showing up in many recipes. This dip is an excellent example of how you can use it in unexpected ways.

Greek yogurt dip.
Why I ❤️ it
Sometimes we only have a few minutes to decide what to cook and make it before guests show up. I love this dressing to dress up (ahem) any picadera, whether homemade or a few pita chips, casabe, tostones, or whatever we can quickly get our hands on.
When he made this as a yogurt dressing for a salad (have I told you I am blessed with a husband who can cook?), it just blew my mind: it is rich and flavorful but much lighter than expected.

Utensils and tools
Before you start, make sure you have all the ingredients and utensils ready.
Step 1: Mix dressing
In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, sugar, mustard, onion salt, mayonnaise, pepper, chives, and onion powder. Mix well.
Flavors deepen if the dip rests in the fridge for an hour or two.
Step 2: Serving
You can sprinkle with a bit of sweet paprika before serving. Serve chilled.
- You can switch out the chives for other minced fresh herbs to garnish (like cilantro, parsley, or dill).
To make it as a potato sauce, add a drizzle of olive oil and a tablespoon of garlic powder and black pepper to taste to elevate the flavor. Garlic cloves would be too pungent in this sauce.
This yogurt dip is also perfect as a light sauce with chicken breast dishes or grilled veggies.
