If you’re looking to swap out some ingredients for a healthier option, or even just ran out of an ingredient that yogurt can replace – look no further, Stonyfield has you covered. In the next week I’ll be sharing different recipes that you can use yogurt in, but let’s dip into this sour cream substitution.

Sour Cream. Personally, I think that the best part about nachos is the sour cream. That creamy goodness combined with spice and crunch just satisfied any craving for me. When I started working at Stonyfield, I heard about another type of creamy, delightful dip inclusion. Greek yogurt.

Dips are so easy to make. They’re almost always under 15 minutes of prep time, everyone can make them and they are welcomed at any type of event. If I’m having friends come over spontaneously, I’ll grab a couple of avocados, dice up some onions, throw in some Greek yogurt and spices to voila – make some creamy guacamole. Easy, healthy and you can bet it’s delicious. I do always like to “remake” a dip – to take something that once was not so healthy and give it a good kick. With that thought in mind, I give you the simple, easy, Onion Dip. Once and always a classic, but with a light and simple substitution.


1/2 fresh small sweet onion or Vidalia (grated)
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t white wine vinegar
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 T chives (chopped)
1 T parsley (chopped)
2 c Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt
salt and white pepper to taste


Step 1

In a medium-size bowl mix together onion, garlic powder, vinegar, salt, pepper, olive oil, chives and parsley.

Step 2

Add yogurt and gently fold.

Step 3

Spoon into serving bowl and refrigerate for 2-4 hours, or overnight. This allows flavors to combine.

Step 4

Garnish with fresh parsley.
