What Is Green Goddess Dip?
A Green Goddess Dip is a creamy Greek yogurt cheese dip that gets all its color from a blend of fresh herbs like parsley, basil, dill, chill, or mint.
It’s a similar dip to the famous Green Goddess Salad that has been everywhere on TikTok, a refreshing salad mixing green herbs and green vegetables.
How To Make Green Goddess Dip
This Green Goddess dipping sauce is very easy to make using only a few ingredients and a food processor or high-speed blender.
The key to making delicious green dips is to use fresh, vibrant herbs to turn your dip into a flavorsome recipe packed with nutrients and fresh flavors.
- Plain Greek Yogurt – This recipe must use thick full-fat Greek yogurt. Low-fat plain yogurt is too thin and turns into a liquid soup. You won’t get a thick creamy texture using this kind of yogurt.
- Feta Cheese – Any kind of feta goat cheese, cow feta, or even dairy-free feta cheese works.
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice tastes much better.
- Fresh Parsley
- Fresh Dill
- Fresh Mint
- Fresh Basil
- Sea Salt
Simply place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.
You don’t need to finely chop the herbs before adding them. You can even keep their stems for the best flavors.
In the bowl of the food processor, add the Greek yogurt, feta, olive oil, lemon juice, fresh herbs, whole peeled garlic cloves, salt, and pepper in the food processor.
Then, process on medium speed until all the ingredients come together into a thick and creamy green dip.
Texture And Color
Depending on how you like your dip, you can adjust its texture and green color.
For a thicker dip, add more feta cheese and blend to incorporate. Another option is to add some tahini as one or two tablespoons thicken the dip very well.
For a thinner texture, add some water or more yogurt.
Finally, to enhance the green color of the dip, add more herbs. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
You can serve this dip straight away after making it or store it for a few hours in the fridge. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent the top of the dip from drying out.
Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, chili powder, or chili flakes for a spicy note and some extra fresh chopped parsley.

This green goddess dip recipe is naturally:
If you have some food allergies, I have listed a few options for you below:
- Dairy-Free Vegan Option – Use thick dairy-free yogurt like Greek-style soy yogurt, plain coconut yogurt, or oat yogurt. For the cheese, pick dairy-free feta cheese.
- Herb Swaps – You don’t have to stick to the herb blend listed in the recipe. If some are not in season, feel free to swap them for other herbs you prefer. For example, chives can be swapped for spring onions. Parsley can be replaced with Italian parsley or even cilantro if preferred.
- Cheese-Free – You can replace the feta cheese with 1/4 cup of hulled tahini or half a ripe avocado.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are my answers to your most common questions about this goddess green dip recipe.
Yes, this yogurt dip freezes well in zip-lock bags or an airtight container.
Store it in the freezer for up to 1 month, then thaw it in the fridge the day before.
To use this recipe as a salad dressing, you must thin it out by adding iced water.
Place ice cubes in a small bowl and fill it with cold tap water.
Then, add some of the iced water to the food processor.
Stop adding water when the dip reaches your favorite dressing texture. You should need less than 1/4 cup of water.
Yes, I had great results using a Vitamix for this recipe, but you need to use the tamper attachment to push down the herbs to the blade.
No, anchovies are not necessary for the taste, making this dip not vegetarian.
Mayonnaise also doesn’t bring much taste and texture to the classic recipe, so it’s worth swapping it for yogurt.
