lemon juice and lemon zest (optional), along with some honey and Dijon mustard to give it a sweet and tangy flavor boost.

Yogurt dips can be made as dips for vegetables or fruits - it's just a matter of the added ingredients. This yogurt dip recipe is the perfect accompaniment to fresh vegetables. It includes lemon juice and lemon zest which add a distinctive freshness to its flavor. The lemon zest offers fairly potent lemon flavor, so if you enjoy a more mild lemon flavor, you can simply omit the lemon zest or reduce it to your own liking.


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together all ingredients in a small mixing bowl until blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
