Lemon & Garlic Dip

This is the perfect dip for all sorts of dishes! It goes well with chicken, fish - but also with a baked potato or some saffron rice. Brilliantly low cholesterol, this Lemon & Garlic Dip is easy to make and can transform lots of meals from slightly tedious into slightly inspired.


  • 0% Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1 Lemon
  • Parsley (or Basil, Coriander, Chervil, Mint)
  • Black Pepper
  • Red Chilli (optional)

Crush a Clove Garlic in a pestle & mortar, or chop it very finely

Add 4 or 5 tablespoons of 0% Greek or Natural Yoghurt to a bowl

Mix in the crushed Garlic, a big squeeze of Lemon Juice, a little Lemon Zest and some ground Black Pepper

Taste – add a little Salt if you prefer, and more Lemon or Garlic

If you like your dip a little spicy – add some fresh chopped Chilli, or some chopped Piquante Peppers

Just before you’re ready to eat – stir in some chopped Fresh Herbs and put into a clean bowl to serve

In terms of herbs… Parsley goes with pretty much anything – Basil is great with pasta dishes, or something a bit Italian – Coriander or Mint would work with Middle Eastern dishes or something spicy
