  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (125 ml)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (from ¼ lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Add Greek yogurt and all the seasoning to a bowl. Stir to combine. Then, add lemon juice and mix.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of water to give the dip a thinner consistency. If you wish to make it even thinner, to use as a salad dressing, add water one tablespoon at a time until you have reached the consistency you like.


💡 TIP! If you want to use a ranch seasoning packet, you can simply combine this with Greek yogurt and lemon juice for a quick and healthy ranch dip.
Ranch is usually served either as a dip or as a dressing, but it has so many potential uses!
Serve ranch as a dip for broccoli cheese balls, vegetables, chicken wings, or other finger foods.
Or, use it as a dressing on pasta salad or a leafy green salad.
You can even serve it as a sauce on top of tacos, casseroles, on pizza or use it as a cooking sauce for chicken.


Store ranch dip in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Leftovers can be used as dip or dressing for future dishes.
You can technically freeze Greek yogurt ranch dressing as well, however this might slightly alter the texture of the dip after thawing it.


One serving of this recipe makes approximately half of one cup of healthy ranch sauce. This is usually enough to serve multiple people as a dipping sauce or salad dressing.
The recipe is very easy to multiply, and can be adjusted to make more servings when needed, like making a big batch for game day or a potluck.
