Tangy, creamy, and even a little nutty, this dip is the perfect way to use up all of those zucchini from the garden, but even if you don’t already have them around, this recipe may just inspire a quick trip to the store to grab them!

What is Zucchini Dip?

Zucchini dip is our go-to for a fresh, creamy, and utterly delicious snack that’s perfect for any occasion. All we do is quickly cook up some zucchinis and blend them with rich olive oil, nutty tahini, tangy Greek yogurt, and garlic for a dip that’s light, flavorful, and satisfyingly creamy.

We like to serve our dip up with homemade crispy pita chips or fresh veggie sticks but you can also spread it on some crusty bread — and it’s perfect for taking sandwiches and wraps to the next level. Whether it’s for a casual family snack, a party appetizer, or a picnic treat, this zucchini dip is always a hit!

Ingredients You Need

  • Large Zucchinis – Fresh zucchinis provide a mild, slightly sweet flavor and a creamy texture when blended. Plus, they add a big boost of nutrients to the dip.
  • Olive Oil – Olive oil adds rich flavor and helps to blend the ingredients so that the dip is super smooth.
  • Salt – Salt brings out the natural flavors of the zucchini and balances the other ingredients.
  • Pepper – Pepper adds just a touch of subtle heat.
  • Tahini – We love the nutty, creaminess that tahini brings to the table in this dip!
  • Garlic Cloves – Garlic gives the dip bold flavor and an irresistible aroma.
  • Greek Yogurt – Greek yogurt provides a refreshing tanginess and also helps to make it creamy.

How to Quickly Whip Up This Easy Zucchini Dip

  1. Prep zucchini. Place the sliced zucchini on a prepared baking sheet in a single layer, season with salt and pepper, and add olive oil. 
  2. Bake. Place the zucchini in the preheated oven and bake until it becomes soft. 
  3. Combine. Add the baked zucchini to a food processor or high-speed blender along with the remaining ingredients and blend until the mixture is completely combined and silky smooth. 
  4. Adjust. Add salt or pepper as needed and serve or store. 

Variations

  • Lemon Juice – Adding a splash of lemon juice can brighten up the dip.
  • Herbs – Herbs like dill, parsley, or mint add fresh flavor. We prefer to use fresh herbs but dried herbs will work, too.
  • Cumin – We adore cumin! Adding it to this dip gives it earthiness and complexity.
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes –  If you want to give the dip a spicy kick, sprinkle in some red pepper.
  • Toasted Pine Nuts – For a little texture, mix toasted pine nuts into the dip or use them as a garnish.
  • Feta Cheese – Crumbled feta cheese can add some salty tanginess. Fold it into the dip or sprinkle it on top.
  • Smoked Paprika – A dash of smoked paprika will give the dip smokiness and a subtle sweetness.
  • Sun-Dried Tomatoes – Chopped sun-dried tomatoes add both sweet and tart flavor and add a bright pop of color.
  • Consistency – If you want to make this recipe into a zucchini dipping sauce for proteins or finger foods, just add extra olive oil until it reaches the consistency you’re looking for.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

When we serve this dip we rarely have leftovers! But, if you do, you can certainly keep them in the dip in the fridge to snack on later or to use as a spread on sandwiches. 

Store zucchini dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Be sure to give it a good stir before serving!
