Go Greek! My Big Fat Salute to Tzatziki

Tz what?! Yes, Tzatziki, the fabulous yogurt-cucumber dip that's available in grocery stores. I simply refer to it as Greece's version of our Ranch Dressing.

Tzatziki when made with low fat yogurt is roughly 35 calories per 2 Tablespoons vs Ranch Dressing which is 80-120 calories per serving.

Try it on:
  • pita bread with turkey
  • omelets
  • as a mayo sub in a chicken salad
  • garden salads
  • as a dip with crackers
  • whatever you imagination comes up with

The bottom line is, you can eat an enormous amount without the guilt.

And isn't that what we all want?
