Parmesan Yogurt Dip

We like to eat raw vegetables a few times a week as a side dish for a meal and this is a healthier alternative to ranch dressing for a veggie dip. —Kathleen Tribble, Buellton, California

    I changed a lot of things in this recipe and now this really tastes better. I added: 2-3 Teaspoon chives, finely minced; 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning (which is low sodium); 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard; 2 teaspoons onion powder ; 2 teaspoons garlic powder; 1/4 teaspoon salt; 1/2 teaspoon pepper. I also changed the yogurt to plain Greek yogurt - much better choice. For the sour cream I used full fat as it's better for you than the reduced or low fat. I did not change the 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese however. The calories were raised to 50 for 2 Tablespoons but it is still lower than most ranch dressings and at least now it tastes good.

    Next time I will cut the mustard in half- it was a little over powering. A nice alternative to fattening dips or low fat versions that just aren't tasty. But it doesn't taste like ranch at all like the description implied.

    Sounds good, but with the 3 oz. liquid limits you won't get this past security.
