Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip is a slightly different version of my Grandma’s Denny’s Homemade Ranch Dip that we had as an appetizer for every family party when I was a kid. This was long before Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk Dressing had burst upon the American culinary scene, but my grandma’s dip did taste a lot like the ranch dressing or dip that’s now a classic in American cooking.

This recipe is a good option for people who want a lighter dip, made without mayo and not using a package mix. Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip  uses cottage cheese for extra protein and I use my favorite Greek Yogurt to make a dip that’s delightfully creamy but lower in fat and higher in protein.

Of course you can use full-fat or reduced-fat cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, depending on which you prefer; either option will be delicious. This recipe has more dill flavor than regular Ranch Dip, so if you’re not crazy about dill, use a smaller amount. I really like the flavor of this Greek yogurt dip and if you’re seriously dieting and need something to take to a holiday party, this dip with an assortment of crisp veggies could help you stay on track.

Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip

Yield 8 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip is a healthy option for an appetizer or snack any time of year!


  • 1 cup cottage cheese (see notes)
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt (see notes)
  • 1-2 tsp. dried dill weed (depending on how much you like dill)
  • 2 tsp. Beau Monde Seasoning (see below for more options)
  • 1-2 tsp. onion powder (can also use finely grated onion if you don't have onion powder)


  1. Put cottage cheese in food processor with steel blade and process about one minute, until cottage cheese is well blended. (It will not be completely smooth.)
  2. Add yogurt, dill weed, onion powder, and Bon Appetit or Beau Monde seasoning
  3. Blend about 30 seconds more, until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Chill at least one hour before using.


  1. Obviously, you can use the Hidden Valley Ranch packaged mix with my mixture of cottage cheese and yogurt to make a dip that's more nutritious than the one on the package.
  2. You can make a variation of this recipe with a little chopped red onion, finely diced cucumber, and finely diced red pepper if you'd like a chunkier dip. I would use about 2 T of each.

About Bon Appetit and Beau Monde Seasoning:

  1. When my Grandma created her Vegetable Dip and when I first made this recipe, there was a purchased seasoning mix called Bon Appetit. When it was discontinued, the company posted a replacement recipe.
  2. Beau Monde Seasoning is made by Spice Islands and the flavor is very similar to the original Bon Appetit. Don't be confused by "recipes" claiming to be Beau Monde Seasoning with a long list of ingredients.)
  3. For a less sweet version of the McCormick Bon Appetit recipe, I would use 2/3 celery salt, 1/3 onion powder, and a tiny pinch of sweetener of your choice.


You can use full-fat or reduced-fat cottage cheese; whichever you prefer. Use full-fat or low-fat yogurt, whichever you prefer. I love Daisy Sour Cream and Daisy Cottage Cheese, and that's the brand I would always use!

Nutritional info is calculated based 1/4 cup servings size and a dip that's made with full-fat Greek yogurt and full-fat cottage cheese.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If you used full-fat cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, this Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip is suitable for low-carb or low-glycemic diet plans. With low-fat cottage cheese and Greek yogurt, this  would be great for any phase of the South Beach Diet. Whichever kind of dairy product you choose, I would use low-carb and low-glycemic vegetables such as celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, jicama, sugar snap peas, raw mushrooms, and bell pepper strips.

  1. I think adding the spices you underline to suggest are not necessary. I think the ranch powdered package is fine and easier.. I will make it with that. Merry Christmas!!

    • Your choice of course. The “underline” is a link to get more information or to take you to a place to buy it for those who might not be able to find it where they live. Hope you enjoy!

  2. Mmm-m-m, love everything about this! And dill? So good!

  3. So good! I used a lot of dried minced onion instead of the powder, celery salt instead of the seasoning you had mentioned…and it tastes just like the wicked onion dip I no longer indulge in.
    Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. I think if you replaced the cottage cheese with milk it would be more the consistency of a dressing instead of a dip, but I'm sure it would still taste okay.

  5. I love Fage and Ranch! Thanks, I will have to make this.

    I was wondering – can you substitute the cottage cheese for regular milk to thin out the yogurt? I usually make homemade ranch with sour cream, mayo, and all the herbs with milk.

  6. looks like yummy and crispy.. thanks kalyn..i will try this at my birthday recipes..

  7. Colie so glad you like it, and that calorie comparison is pretty impressive!

  8. I just made the ranch dressing with 16oz Greek Yogurt, 16oz Cottage Cheese blended with 1/2 cup 2%milk and a package of Hidden Valley Ranch Mix. Its AWESOME! It has 1200 calories per 34 ounces compared to 3600 calories per 24 ounces of a bottle of Hidden valley Original Ranch and tastes better! I'm so excited to eat it up!

  9. Jade, glad you liked it. I learned that trick of grating fresh onion from my Grandmother Denny!

  10. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! I tried the fresh onion variation and it’s delicious, the texture is great too — I don’t feel guilty eating this at all!

  11. This sounds great! I love cottage cheese, but usually reserve it for baked potatoes, but what a good idea! Ranch dressing isn’t big here in Scotland, but I would try this one! I always make the same french dressing, so I could do with a change!

  12. Fage is goooood. Love it with just some honey and lavender.
