Creamy Salsa Dip (C3)

Courtesy of: Dannon Yogurt container

Note that this recipe assumes plain nonfat regular yogurt; if you're going to use Greek yogurt, the calories would be considerably more, as would the proteins.

Also note that cilantro is a C3 ingredient.  Because there is so little in it, I don't know that I'd fret a lot about using it in C1.  Also, per serving, the amount of cilantro is pretty minimal.

2 Cups Plain Nonfat Yogurt
1 Cup Salsa
3 1/2 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 tsp Sea Salt

Combine in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate till your ready to use.

17DD Gal Notes:

I would look for lowfat yogurt instead of nonfat. With regular yogurts, if they are NONfat, the sugars can be much higher; with lowfat, there's a good level of both fats and sugars.  Remember, we do need some fat in our diet, just not a lot.


  1. I tried this recipe and it is delicious!!! Thanks for posting it. Sometimes you just gotta have something snacky, and this recipe lets you have that and be healthy. Love it.

  2. Before the 17 Day Diet, I used to make a different version of this with cream cheese and salsa creamed together -- this reminds me somewhat of that and you're right -- healthy but feels like it's almost not allowed!

  3. What would you dip in this?

  4. Vegetables, mostly. I cut up cucumbers, broccoli, carrot sticks, and sometimes celery to "nosh" on with this dip. Also, someone else used this as a topping on tilapia that they broiled and they said it came out really nice.
