Have you heard about Chobani yogurt’s #madewithchobani Summer challenge? (for more recipes using this lower fat & higher protein sub, check out Made With Chobani) As a long time Chobani lover, I was STOKED to find this awesome challenge & website to find new ways to incorporate Greek yogurt into my cooking-and you can too! It’s an open challenge, so just submit your creation to the Chobani social media team.
But how on earth could I just choose one way to use this thick, creamy, and tangy yogurt? I’m currently swimming in farmers market vegetables, so I thought I’d try to make something to dip fresh vegetables (and yummy multigrain crackers) into. After a second of thinking my favorite Greek topping came to mind…… tzatziki!
Have you had Greek tzatziki sauce/dip before? It’s really the most refreshing & delicious creamy topping to anything really, but is particularly delicious over grilled chicken and vegetables. Add a sprinkle of feta cheese and you’re golden. I know this isn’t your typical tzatziki sauce, no dill in sight! But dill is one of those flavors that I just can’t take in large amounts, and since this is my own recipe, I do what I want! So really, you need to spend just 5 minutes to toss this together and it might just change your life annnnnd keep you full because it’s chalk full of protein. I know, you’re welcome!

Plain Greek yogurt is a staple in my fridge. I use it to make overnight oats, I use it in place of sour cream in recipes and to top my fave Mexican foods, I occasionally use it in place of fats in baking, and as a great thickener in soups. Plain Greek yogurt is so delicious & versatile, you can use it a lot! Still in need of some Greek yogurt recipe inspiration? Check out these delicious recipes on the Chobani recipe index on
