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.
