Who doesn’t love a dip? Dips are perfect for entertaining but don’t just save this recipe for Greek Salad Dip for company! Enjoy this yourself!
The recipe for this Greek Salad Dip is just written on a piece of paper so I must have jotted it down from somewhere!. I have had this recipe for over 30 years! I love going through my recipe binders & decide to make some of the older recipes! I have a large collection of recipes that I have written down over the years!
I changed the original recipe. I used some low fat options to make this Greek Salad Dip … the original recipe uses sour cream but I used non-fat greek yogurt. the ou can use a food processor to mix it up or I bet even a blender if you don’t have a food processor. If your ingredients are at room temp you could mix this up by hand or you can use a mixer!
Topped with chopped up tomatoes, green onions, cucumbers, red pepper & Kalamata olives. You can make this your own by adding or eliminating any of the toppings! My suggestions would be.. instead of the green onion try adding some red onion or a pickled red onion would work nicely. Don’t like red pepper? Use any pepper or leave out! What about the olives? Any olive would work just fine here!
How to enjoy this delish dip?? Serve this with Pita, crackers, on the side with any dish. I like to have it alongside some fish. Or even a delish topping on perogy! The ways to eat this are endless

I served this Greek Salad Dip in a pie plate because a shallow. dish works well here but use whatever shadow serving dish you chose
- Combine all of the dip ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, mix well, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure all of the ingredients are well mixed
- Place the dip into the serving dish
- I combined the chopped tomato, green onion, cucumber & pepper together, then put them on top of the dip. Then I sprinkled on the chopped olives & I sprinkled a bit of dried parsley overtop but that isn’t necessary
- Store in the fridge until ready to eat!
- Serve with mini pitas and or pita chips or crackers!
