Using plain Greek-style yogurt makes this dip a creamier and healthier alternative to a traditional mayonnaise and sour cream blend.


  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cups Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds (roasted and coarsely ground, for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Place the cumin seeds in a small skillet and toast for a few seconds over medium heat until fragrant.
  2. Place the yogurt in a bowl along with 1/2 the cumin, salt, chili powder, cucumber and coriander. Mix until thoroughly blended.
  3. Garnish the dip with the remaining cumin, cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
