This lush, tangy, and spicy yogurt recipe is one of the tastier yogurt dips we’ve made, and we think you’ll agree. It’s perfect as a dip for raw vegetables, so add it to your healthy recipes for snacks, and it can also be used in healthy meals, say dolloped on a cool lentil salad, a baked potato, or atop a pureed bean soup. This Easy-to-Make Lemon Cumin Yogurt Dip is a great replacement for a sour cream topping on many dishes, and it’s much healthier, too!
