  1. Weirdest thing EVER! Not even ten minutes ago I had the idea to make ranch dip with Greek yogurt! Opened my IG and your post was up about this. Must be meant to be for me to make some for my children! 🙂 thanks!

  2. Just made it for an afternoon snack! Used my own spices and didn’t have any onion powder but still worked well! Thanks for this Heidi – love the healthy snacks in the home.

    1. Yes, it would be part of a protein serving in carb cycling since each serving has 2.9 grams of protein. Enjoy!

  3. I used this as a base for Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza. I use bacon bits for the slight flavor to save the calories and fat. Really yummy.

    1. Tiffany: I’ve made this recipe before and have used several different brands of non-fat plain Greek yogurt, and all have worked fabulously! I don’t think you can go wrong with any brand. Enjoy!
