Recipe ReDux: Cucumber Greek Yogurt Dip [sponsored]

I received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, so it’s only fitting that Dare Foods is challenging Recipe ReDux members to create gluten-free recipes using Breton Gluten Free crackers (Original with Flax + Herb & Garlic)!

I have two friends in school with celiac disease, so whenever we gather for potlucks, I like trying to make something that they’ll be able to enjoy as well. [It’s pretty depressing to attend a food event only to realize that you can’t eat anything on the table. :/ ]

As medical students (or really, anyone in general), I feel that time is something we will never, ever have enough of, so my main priorities with any kind of food-prepping tends to involve the following thought process:

1) Is it simple and uncomplicated?
2) Does it require a whole lot of ingredients? (Or would it call for expensive ingredients?)
3) Does it take a long time to make?
4) Does it taste good and is it reasonably healthy?

If it’s simple, inexpensive, healthy, and quick, I know I can proceed. These crackers are light and crisp with a nutty flavor, so I figured making some kind of a dip to go along with it would work well! This recipe is probably as easy as it gets, is packed with a whole ton of protein, and would be a great crowd-pleaser for any kind of food gathering! :]
