Why I Love This Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

I know for a lot of kids, ranch dressing is basically its own food group. And to be honest, I could personally eat ranch dressing every day and love every second of it. There’s something special about the flavoring that’s perfectly delicious, yet not too bold for kids (including lots of picky eaters).

I did my Registered Dietitian thing with this recipe and swapped out the sour cream, replacing it with low fat Greek yogurt. This has become a standard swap in my house, with basically anything that calls for sour cream. A dollop of plain Greek yogurt tastes even better than sour cream, in my opinion, on tacos, fajitas, chili, baked potatoes, and more! 

Serve the Dip With Stuffed Cauliflower Bites

I mean, what’s better than serving this healthy ranch dip with some veggie packed bites??

These Stuffed Cauliflower Bites from Veggies Made Great are a healthier take on a pizza roll, and got thumbs up votes all around in my house! 

Serving this as an afternoon snack would definitely earn you a gold medal for best parent ever.

Made with a crispy cauliflower crust, the bites are stuffed with a delicious blend of veggies and real cheese. And, there are several flavors to choose from! My 4 year old’s favorite is the Margherita flavor. There’s also Spinach & Ricotta, Mushroom & Swiss with Caramelized Onions (YUM), and Roasted Veggie (has a kick).

If your kid is not super into veggies, you NEED to try these Cauliflower Bites. Your little one would never guess that they are so veggie rich, and it won’t take any convincing or bribing them to eat these up!

Ingredients Needed for Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

You probably already have most of these on hand! All you need is:

  • Low fat or full fat Greek yogurt (2% or 5%): I used 2% because that’s what I usually have on hand, but it would be even creamier with full fat Greek yogurt!
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt: don’t have kosher salt? Just use a fine grain sea salt.
  • ¼  teaspoon black pepper: this is on the conservative side but you can still omit it if you think your little one won’t like any hint of pepper.
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar: you could substitute apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, or probably even lemon juice in a pinch.

How to Make this Recipe

First, grab a small bowl and stir together the Greek yogurt with all the seasonings for the ranch dip. Set it aside.

Prepare the Cauliflower Bites according to package directions. My personal favorite method is using the air fryer! No oven preheating time wasted, and they get perfectly crispy every time. 

No air fryer? No worries. You can absolutely use the toaster oven, regular oven, or even the microwave in a pinch. Sometimes it’s a snack emergency and the speed of the microwave is the only solution. I’ve been there.
