  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 small (½ cup) cucumber peeled, seeded, shredded (see Notes), and water squeezed out
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ Tbsp dried dill
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp red onion very finely diced


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Refrigerate 2 hours before serving to combine flavors.


If your onion is very fresh or particularly pungent, put the chopped onion in a strainer and run under water for 30 seconds to take the edge off before adding to the rest of the ingredients. We want the kick, but we don't want it crazy overpowering.
Use the large holes of a cheese grater to shred the cucumber.
