The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Yogurt dip

Try this dip with different varieties of crackers. Whole wheat crackers are my favorite.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 or 3 whole walnuts, shelled
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 c plain yogurt
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • dash of vinegar
  • 1/2 c diced cucumber

Using a muddler, mash the garlic and walnuts in the olive oil. If you don’t have a muddler you can quickly mash them in a food processor using the pulse for 2 – 3 seconds. You don’t want them to be complete mush; you want some pieces of garlic and walnut but not large pieces. Blend the mixture into the yogurt. Stir in remaining ingredients and chill for at least one hour before serving. Makes approximately 1 cup of dip.

Cost:
garlic clove – $0.50/1 head
walnuts – $2.00
yogurt – $2.12
vinegar (small) – $0.92
cucumber – $1.00
Total – $4.92
