Lemon-Horseradish Dip

I keep forgetting how much I like horseradish.  It’s one of those things that I eat and think Why haven’t I been eating this on my turkey sandwiches my whole life?  But then I’ll go and have another turkey sandwich and still forget to pull out the horseradish.  So when I had a friend coming over and nothing in the way of appetizers to prepare quickly, I was reminded of this good old standby.  And since I usually have Greek yogurt and lemons in my refrigerator, this Lemon-Horseradish Dip pretty much could have made itself.

Plain non-fat Greek yogurt is mixed with horseradish and lemon zest.  Can’t get much easier than that.  This is a light unassuming dip that will perfect for those moments when you need something really quick.  It’s great for dipping whatever you have on hand also – vegetables, crackers, or chips.  This recipe was on a page from Real Simple magazine about uses for Greek yogurt and I’ve now made each one.  Check out the other recipes for quick and easy dips here:
