Avocado Yogurt Dip

Ok, so as part of a "diet renovation" in my house, I picked up some Greek Yogurt at the food store & decided I would try to substitute it into as many dishes as I could. It has a pretty close similarity in taste and texture to sour cream. I picked a tub of 0% Plain Chobani, which has a pretty pretty nutrition facts panel. You can't get that from a tub of sour cream!
So anyway, tonight I made some grilled chicken cobb salads for G & I. I made some Avocado Dressing to go with it. I made it pretty thick, & we discovered it would be a fabulous veggie dip for a party. There is a bit leftover that I'm already dreaming about for lunch tomorrow! Anyway, here's how I made it:

1 Avocado
3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
2 tablespoon skim milk
1/8 cup finely chopped green onions
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic
1/8 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp cilantro
Season salt & Pepper to taste

I just threw it all in the blender & pureed! Don't let the list of ingredients scare you. I just used what I had on hand - could easily substitute herbs & seasonings, the vinegar, etc. to your taste! The moral of the story is that it makes for basically guilt free snacking, dining, eating. Yum, yum, yum!
