Tasty Tuesday - Skinny Cucumber Dip

My cucumbers have finally started to grow so I've been trying to think of ways to use them other than on my salad. Enter Skinny Cucumber Dip! The recipe is originally from Gina's Skinny Recipes and was used as a dressing, but Lacey from Viva LAS Lacey thickened it up and served as a dip!

1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 small cucumber, peeled and seeds removed
3 tbsp fresh parsley
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup chives or scallions
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 salt

Mix it all up in the blender!

  She also ended up adding more mayo in to thicken the dip. Let it chill for awhile to further thicken it up-great with veggies and pita chips!
