Cilantro Yogurt Dip

Straining yogurt gives you a no-fat version of sour cream with a light tang that blends nicely with cilantro. Try it with chili and other spicy dishes as well.


  • 2 cups plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Step 1
Line a large strainer with a coffee filter or paper towel and place over a mixing bowl.
Step 2
Pour in yogurt and let sit until some of the liquid has drained away and the yogurt is the consistency of sour cream, about one hour.
Step 3
Transfer to small mixing bowl; stir in salt and cilantro.
