"You can use either whole or low-fat Greek yogurt and mayonnaise (but don't use nonfat). Let the dips chill for at least one hour or they will be too loose. I find that there is enough salt in the mayo & cheese and enough pepper in the ingredient list that it does not need any more."

I followed instructions as listed and this turned out perfectly creamy. We used this to top our burgers and it was delicious!

The dip was perfect with vegetables and assorted crackers and was so good. Liked the greek yogurt instead of the usual sour cream and the addition of black pepper. Will make this my go to dip recipe! Made and reviewed for the Pick Me! game.

Totally delicious dip and we liked it so well that I made it for New Years too. I may just try Parmesan cheese for variety next time, but as is, it was awesome too! We dipped with chips and pita wedges at one sitting and then a veggie platter for New Years. Yummy both ways!

I whipped this up last night so the flavors would have a chance to mix together and it is now in the fridge, but not before I taste tested it with a few chips. Delicious all the way and it is going to be enjoyed today at our first barbecue with family and friends for Memorial Day!
