Opa's Yogurt Dip

It's time for fresh salads from your garden or your local markets. This recipe has been in our family for the past 30 years. "Can't you make Opa's Dip?" My husband's father, who is 98...who was a farmer in the past, has also acquired some new skills in the kitchen. He loves to help Helen prepare the meals.
This is one-low fat recipe that he has made himself. We use this for vegetable dips, or pour dressing over your salad. I just made a fresh batch to serve with our fresh vegetables.
It's salad time !

Opa's Yogurt Dip
  • 1 C mayonnaise
  • 1 C natural yogurt
  • 1-2 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 shakes garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • pepper for taste
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. dill weed (dried)
  • 1 tbsp. parsley (dried)
Blend ingredients together with a whisk. Refrigerate and enjoy the blend of natural flavors.
Enjoy!

  7. I make a similar dip using equal parts mayo and sour cream. But then I guess it couldn't be called Opa's yogurt dip. =)
