Diabetes-Friendly Recipe Low-Carb Recipe High-Calcium Recipe


  • 2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (or pre-strained nonfat plain yogurt, such as Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt) *
  • 1/4 cup finely minced cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt


* IF USING GREEK (PRE-STRAINED YOGURT): In a small mixing bowl, add yogurt; stir in salt and cilantro.

IF USING REGULAR UN-STRAINED YOGURT: Strain yogurt by lining a large strainer with a coffee filter or paper towel and place over a mixing bowl. Pour in yogurt and let sit until some of the liquid has drained away and the yogurt is the consistency of sour cream, about one hour. Transfer strained yogurt to small mixing bowl; stir in salt and cilantro.

Makes about 1-1/2 cups.


This dip goes well with quesadillas, chili, and other spicy dishes (see recipe links below).
