your new sour cream.

i once heard that plain greek yogurt is a great replacement for sour cream.
and i thought, pff, yeah right.
but it's true!  it's tart, it's rich, it's lovely.
i've been replacing it as much as i can lately, and i'm loving it.
it tastes so much richer and creamier, and i think i might like it even more than sour cream (gasp!)
this is actually something i've knocked off of a trader joe's dip.  i had it, loved it, and knew it had to be duplicated!
need a great replacement dip or condiment for your next mexican feast?  i've got you covered.
you need:
8 oz plain greek yogurt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 heaping tsp dried chives
1/2 heaping tsp dried cilantro
splash of lemon juice
dash of salt

mix it all together and chill.  oh, then enjoy.


  1. my hubby would love this. love.

    1. well try it out and let me know the verdict! :)

  2. This dip sounds great! I have been using greek yogurt in tons of stuff lately, even in muffins. It is a great ingredient :)

    1. i have too, i didn't for so long b/c i was scared it would taste weird but now i find myself loving it!
