Helpful hints

  • For additional protein, Greek yogurt may be used in place of sour cream.
  • If fresh dill weed is unavailable substitute with 1 teaspoon dried dill weed.
  • If small pitas are not available serve with 1/2 of a large (6-1/2-inch) pita.
  • Serve on a lettuce leaf or with 6 low sodium crackers instead of pita if desired.
