Greek Tzatziki dip

So, I made up this dip for our small group this week to go with veggies--since I'm a Ranch-o-holic and my butt is not. It's healthy, it's easy to make, and it's super tasty!!

Greek Tzatziki Dip

1 cup Greek, nonfat yogurt
1/2 cucumber, seeded and finely diced
1 tsp dill
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 lemon
1 tsp EVOO

Mix together ingredients, and taste to make sure the balance makes your taste buds happy. This will make a chunky and delicious (almost Ranch-like) tzatziki dip! Serve with toasted pita chips and veggies for dipping. 

**If you want a smoother consistency for the dip like I did, you can whirl it through the food processor to make it nice and creamy (but slightly more liquidy, thanks to the cucumber).**


I also HAVE to share a favorite verse from last night, that is sure to help bring me peace in this week before my tonsillectomy! (Eek!) And maybe it's exactly what you needed to hear today too...

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment."
1 John 4:18
