Greek Yogurt Dip with Feta

Greek yogurt is an amazing ingredient. Extra thick and creamy, it’s the perfect yogurt to use in recipes when you want richness and tang. But beware, 8 ounces of full fat Greek yogurt can have as much as 23 grams of fat! Look for fat-free (0%) or reduced-fat (2%) Greek yogurt. It’s still incredibly thick and rich, but without all the fat. Next time you make a creamy dip or salad dressing, try swapping Greek yogurt for sour cream. You’ll be amazed at the results.
Here’s a favorite Greek yogurt dip recipe I created. Great served with fresh veggies or spread on whole grain crackers.
