Like all recipes this yoghurt, mint and Zucchini Dip came about from a simple thought process. I have waaaaaay too many lovely zucchinis (courgettes) – tick. I have tons of mint – tick.  As for coconut yoghurt……….. you kinda get the gist.

This great thing about this Courgette Dip is that it requires on 5 main ingredients (Zucchini, mint, lemon, olive oil and coconut yoghurt). The others are completely optional but add that little extra something to the dip that take it from good to WOAH.

Vegan Dip

This is a light and refreshing dip that will help use up your zucchini bounty. I have kept it vegan by using coconut yoghurt. But feel free to use other yoghurts like soya yoghurt too.

Courgette Dip Tips

  • To make it a bit thinner add in more yoghurt and olive oil and to make it sharper add in more lemon.
  • I have since come across versions of this at barbeques and Middle Eastern restaurants that include cumin or tahini etc.
  • This is a great way to use up slightly larger courgettes.

  1. I could make a meal out of this! Such a fantatic flavor combination…..who could resist?!?

  2. What a GREAT idea for a dip and with courgettes too, how clever for a way to use up a glut! Thanks for entering this into Cooking with Herbs, Karen

  3. What a delicious dip – this reminds me of tzatziki sauce with the mint and yogurt and lemon. I love the use of the zucchini and I’m sure I would enjoy this with vegetables or pita or even chips!

  4. 5 stars
    I have to give it a go! I love dips of all sorts, but never had a chance to try courgette and mint combination 🙂

  5. This recipe sounds really good and you took a great picture! I love mint. 🙂 I’m Deanna from Gloriously Made and I’m one of the co-hosts of Tasty Tuesdays this month. Thanks for linking up your recipe. I’m your newest bloglovin, twitter, and google plus follower and would love some follow backs if you are interested.
    Hope you have a great day!

  6. Oh what a fab idea! Wish I’d had this recipe the last two summers when I grew an inordinate amount of courgettes and was always in a bit of a frenzy to get them all eaten!. And as my kids are both weirdly adverse to all things cucumber but like courgette this could be the perfect tzatziki type dip for them!. Shall be trying soon :), Louisa
