Say buh-bye fatty ranch dressing that negates every salad it touches.

Hello to this protein-packed skinny ranch dip!

As I shared back when I posted this Roasted Red Pepper Parmesan Dip, nothing makes me more skeptical than a dip that advertises itself as “skinny.”

Most of the time, I’d rather have less of the real-deal than more of a low-fat dip that doesn’t satisfy.

Fortunately for us, a thick, dreamy base of plain Greek yogurt is the ideal stealthy healthy vehicle for the addictive garlic, onion, and dill spices that create classic ranch flavor.

Ben, who ingests vegetables with the attitude most humans apply towards cough syrup—a necessary evil—ate a good chunk of this Greek yogurt dip with carrots before I had even started the photographs!

“Delicious! Even my 12 year old daughter who doesn’t like ranch dip or even Greek yogurt, thinks it is tasty!”

How to Make Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

All you need for this ranch-style Greek yogurt dip is a cup of your favorite non-fat plain Greek yogurt and a handful of dried herbs and spices that you likely keep stocked in your pantry.

The Ingredients

  • Greek Yogurt. Packed with protein, one of my favorite ways to use non-fat plain Greek yogurt is to turn it into a healthy Greek yogurt dip or sauce. It’s the best “skinny” swap for sour cream which is commonly used in other dip recipes.

Substitution Tip!

If you don’t have non-fat Greek yogurt on hand, readers have reported success making this recipe with traditional plain yogurt also. The consistency will be a bit thinner, but it will still taste great!

  • Garlic Powder and Onion Powder. Lends some zip and a little bite to the dip.
  • Dill and Chives. Brings color, freshness and that signature ranch flavor.
  • Worcestershire Sauce. Adds saltiness and craveable, savory umami flavor to the dip.
  • Cayenne Pepper. Just a pinch of this spice goes a long way in adding a touch of heat to this cooling dip.

Substitution Tip!

If you are really in a big hurry, you can of course always turn to a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dip mix. Mix a few teaspoons into Greek yogurt and you are good to go.

(That said, I love this healthy homemade herb and spice blend though because it cuts down the sodium substantially from what is typically found in the Hidden Valley packets.)

  1. I know these ingredients make one cup. But if I was just going to dip some veggies how many servings would this make?

    1. Hi Nicole! I find this serves 4 to 6 if you have it as a part of a spread with a few other items. I hope this is helpful!

  2. This tastes a lot like onion dip to me, very very good as a veggie tray dip. I made it for my daughter to dip broccoli tots in as she is allergic to egg and can’t have typical ranch. Definitely recommend this as a dip for whatever!!5 stars

  3. Perfect! I made a new recipe that was missing a little something and needed a dip or a sauce. I searched for “yogurt dip” and 2 minutes later dinner was complete! I added a touch of red vinegar and a pinch of sugar too.5 stars

  4. Ok this is SO much healthier than the Kraft brand and if you leave it in the fridge for at least a few hours it is DELICIOUS. On weight watchers and the entire cup of this is the same amount of points as 2 tbsp of Kraft! Hallelujah!
    Great recipe! Thank you!5 stars

    1. Hi Jane, while I have not tried it myself with regular plain yogurt, other readers have with success! Let me know if you try it!

  5. I love how easy this is, and uses ingredients I always have on hand. Best of all, it’s got a great flavor that works well with veggies. A winner!5 stars

  6. It’s so simple, yet such a great recipe! I’m cutting calories and eating tons of fresh veggies, and this has been ESSENTIAL to my healthy eating habits. Well Plated is my go to site for unique, healthy, flavorful recipes!5 stars

  7. This has been my go-to ranch dressing for a couple years now and I love it! I usually add lemon juice to thin it out a bit, but this healthy swap is a keeper.5 stars

  8. Erin, I am a senior citizen who has never left a comment on a website before, but I felt compelled to do so. I have used many of your recipes, and they are ALL excellent. I’m especially excited about this dip recipe now that I have to be on a low sodium, high protein diet. This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. Keep up the good work – you are an excellent and health conscious cook!5 stars

  9. Haven’t tried recipes. Wondering why the sodium is missing in the nutrition analysis. RD at dialysis clinic; sodium is always an issue. Thanks

    1. Hi Kim! I stopped including sodium info because it can vary so much depending upon what products you used, and I found a lot of conflicting info online, so ultimately I didn’t feel comfortable publishing it because sometimes it wasn’t even in the ballpark. If you’d like to calculate it yourself, there are lots of free tools online ( is popular). I hope that helps!

    1. Hi Bianca! I’ve not used fresh dill in this, but did a quick Google search. It seems 1 tablespoon fresh dill = 1 tsp dried dill. So since this recipe calls for 1/2 tsp dried dill then it would be 1/2 tablespoon fresh dill. If you decide to experiment, let me know how it goes!

  10. Omg. It tastes too good to be skinny😍
    There is nothing better in the summer than tomatoes fresh from the garden. So I diced my tomatoes and dunked them in this delicious dip. Thinking about substituting this for mayo! Thank you!5 stars
