  • Sour Cream: Greek yogurt makes an excellent substitute, adding a bit more tanginess and creaminess.
  • Garlic: If you’re not a garlic fan, shallots can provide a milder, slightly sweet alternative.
  • Parsley: Dried cilantro or dill can offer a unique twist, giving the dip a different herbal note.
