Paige's Yogurt Dip

Last week I received an email from my friend Paige asking me to try her yogurt dip recipe and let her know my thoughts. Paige and I lived in the same building for 2 years and spent quite a few nights cooking things up in the kitchen. She's missed terribly. Here's her yogurt dip.

Tangy Yogurt Dip
1/2 cup non fat plain yogurt
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 tablespoon pick-a-peppa sauce
black pepper, paprika, garlic powder to taste
1/4 teaspoon creamy horseradish sauce
mix and garnish with parsley

Tonight Anna and I had dinner of hummus, eggplant dip, brie cheese, and crackers. I thought this would be a great time to try out Paige's dip. I made a few changes: increased the amount of horseradish to 1 teaspoon, left out pick-a-peppa sauce (my grocery store did not have it), and eliminated parsley.

Thoughts: pretty good! I think using low-fat or full fat or Greek yogurt would have been of great benefit. Also, adding fresh dill would brighten things up.

Overall, this is a good quick dip. You could use it as a spread on sandwiches or a dressing for a chicken or potato or even tuna salad.

Thanks, Paige!

I think it tastes better today, and it's also thicker!

Update. I just used the dip as a thick dressing in a chicken salad with some diced raddishes, cucumber, and onion. Rather good! I did add another healthy heap of the horseradish.

whoo hooo!!!! although, the pick-a-pepper is what sells it! thanks so much for trying it :) i agree, it would be very good as a dressing for chicken salad. Also recommend horseradish in mashed potatoes with garlic and black pepper.
