Ingredients
  

  • 5 eggs
  • cup Dill Greek Yogurt Dip
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp sweet or dill relish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Put eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Cover the pan and bring water to a boil. Remove from heat and let the pan sit, still covered, for 15 minutes. 
  • After 15 minutes, drain hot water from the pan and fill with cold water and ice to cool eggs. Peel the eggs.
  • Chop eggs and combine with yogurt, onion and relish.
  • Hack: This can be served on bread or, if you’re looking to cut back on your carbs, you can serve it with salad greens.  Try mixing in some chopped tomatoes and cucumbers!
  • Hack: Hard-boiled eggs keep in the refrigerator for one week so consider making a few extra while you’ve got the water boiling! They make a great snack alone, pickled or deviled eggs.

Ingredients
  

  • cup full fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp dried dill weed
  • Black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Combine all ingredients. Allow to rest for one hour to meld the flavors.
  • Hack: This recipe can be used in many ways. It’s full-flavored and powerful so a little goes a long way! It can be used as a dip, a dressing or to marinade meats. At a ¼ the calories and ⅓ the fat, it makes a healthy substitute for mayonnaise when making potato/pasta salads and sandwich salads such as egg or tuna.
  • Hack: I use full-fat yogurt because I like the mouthfeel, taste and thicker texture as opposed to low or nonfat. If you prefer your dip even thicker still, drain the yogurt in the fridge overnight by using a cheesecloth-lined mesh colander. Place the colander in a bowl to catch the excess liquid.
  • Hack:  Use this dip to make Greek Yogurt Marinaded Chicken or Egg Salad!
