INGREDIENTS:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 small bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley, dill, and chives

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

PREPARATION:
Start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4-5 minutes). Place the herb bunches on the grill grate along with the sliced onion (we used a Frogmat) to prevent the onions from falling through the grate, but you could also use Traeger's Grilling Basket).

Close the lid and smoke for 15-30 minutes depending on how much smoke flavor you like. The leaves will look slightly wilted.

Pull the leaves off of the pasley and dill and place the entire chive chutes in a food processor. Add all of the other ingredients.

Pulse until herbs and yogurt and fully combined.

Transfer to a serving bowl and keep chilled until ready to serve.
