Lemon-Dill Cucumber Dip

Fat-free Greek-style yogurt gives this quick and flavorful dip a rich, creamy texture. It's perfect served with your choice of fresh, crunchy veggies or toasted whole-wheat pita bread. The flavors are flexible, so customizing to taste is easy —add more cucumber for extra crunch or a little more garlic for extra bite. —Jeremy McCarty, Asheville, North Carolina
