I’ve tried to create a skinny version of just about everything. Greek yogurt is one of my favorite swaps for sour cream, and I’ve made more than one dip featuring this creamy, health-food dream ingredient. I have finally found the best “healthy” dip recipe, Skinny Sour Cream and Onion Dip.
While this recipe requires a little more time than I was previously putting into my “skinny” party dips, it’s well worth it. And it’s not a lot, about 30 minutes to be exact.

The ingredient list is short and sweet: 1.5 cups plain non-fat Greek yogurt, two finely diced yellow onions, 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream, two tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 teaspoons sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
First things first, place your yogurt in a medium strainer lined with a coffee filter (placed inside a deep bowl.) Cover and throw that back in the fridge for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a 12″ skillet. I used my cast iron for this, it’s my favorite new thing. When the oil is hot, add the onions, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the onions are deep brown, remove with a slotted spoon to a sheet pan lined with two layers of paper towels. Allow the onions to cool slightly and drain a little more there.
Place the strained Greek yogurt, sour cream and cooked onions together in a medium bowl. Give it a good stir to combine well. Give it a try, add a little more salt and pepper, if desired. Cover and allow to chill for at least an hour. Ideally, this dip is best when the flavors have had adequate time to meld, about 24 hours. I can say, however, you won’t get any complaints if you forget to make it ahead of time and throw it together last minute!
I’m in love with smoked paprika, so I like to split this dip up into smaller serving bowls and season each differently. Try some with your favorite herbs and spices to make it uniquely yours. Forget the guilt and enjoy!
