Herbed Goat Cheese Yogurt Dip w. Caramelized Onions


Sometimes you just need to bring a healthy option with you when you go to a party. That's what I did a few days ago, when we went to a Superbowl party that was all about breaded and deep-fried foods (think wings, zucchini sticks, and trays of chicken parm). I was really glad I'd brought along this dip and loads of crudit├ęs, so I could munch all day long on some clean foods!

This dip is simple, especially if you already have caramelized onions on hand from our Foolproof Caramelized Onions recipe (super easy because they're made in the Crockpot). Or try this stovetop technique. I used dried dill and parsley, because it's what I had; if you have fresh herbs handy, by all means, use 'em! 

The dip is quite filling because it's packed with protein from the yogurt and goat cheese (two ingredients that are also usually easy on your digestive system). Plus, all the herbs add loads of flavor, as well as nice amounts of vitamins C and K. This dip is quite thick and would also make a fabulous sandwich spread.

Ingredients
yields about 2 cups 
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup chopped caramelized onions
  • 4 ounce log of soft, plain goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 2 T dried dill
  • 1 T dried parsley
  • steak seasoning (I used this one from Urban Accents*) and/or sea salt, to taste


Allow the goat cheese to soften to room temperature. Then, mix all ingredients in a bowl, using a fork to ensure they are well combined. Let the dip sit for at least an hour (overnight is even better) so that the flavors fully meld together. I like to reserve a bit of the onions and the herbs to use on the top of the finished dip; it looks pretty and gives people an idea of what's inside!
