Greek Yogurt Dill Dip

Oh yeah baby. This dip is freaking amazing. I grew up on Hidden Valley Ranch dip, the kind that comes powdered in the packet that you mix with a tub of sour cream. You just can't reproduce that much flavor with homemade dip. Wait, I take that back. I've now learned that that's totally possible to do. You can actually make something that tastes better and maybe even different like this dill dip. I've had greek yogurt dill dip homemade before and to be honest, it just wasn't that good. It was bland no matter how much salt I shook on it because all it had in it was greek yogurt, lemon juice, and dill. It was just blahh, but I pretended to be like everyone else and act like it was the best dip since Hidden Valley Ranch, totally NOT. That old dill dip needed way more rounding out and enhancing of the dill flavor. I didn't know that then, but I do now. Now I know that you need things like crushed garlic, minced onion, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, mustard powder, pepper, and mayonnaise to make mouthwatering dill flavor. And dill, too. I don't know if this dip is still constituted as "healthy" since I let the cat out of the bag on the mayonnaise thing, but I don't really care. I'll just call it flavor and pretend it's calorie-less like the mustard powder and pepper. Eeeeeven though it's not. Because, let's face it, I probably won't be making or eating this dip for another century. I'm exaggerating, but I'm actually "dieting", whatever that means, and I've been seeing how many extra calories I've been taking in through bites here and there or excessive portion sizes of things like brown rice or avocados that adding an extra element of "dip" into my life would cause sheer and utter breakdown of all weight loss producing habits. Sadface. I still love you, my dill dip. Please make this dill dip and honor its memory, for me. Thanks. Love :)
