11. Spinach Stuffed Salmon with Dill Yogurt Sauce: Protein plus vegetable is a standard yet tedious basis for healthy recipes. Top salmon and spinach with this lemony dill yogurt sauce to quickly elevate the dish.

12. Strawberry-Kiwi Yogurt Freezer Pops: Pureed strawberries and OJ combine with Greek yogurt for a quick treat any time of year. Add kiwi slices to fancy it up a bit.

13. Tzatziki (Yogurt Dip): Tzatziki is a traditional Greek and Turkish appetizer also used as a sauce or dip. This recipe is perfect with Mediterranean dishes or plain grilled meats on a hot summer's day.

14. Waldorf Salad: Using low-fat yogurt makes this classic salad healthier than other recipes. It's simple enough that kids can help prepare it!

15. Yogurt Cheesecake with Strawberries: Use Greek yogurt in place of higher-fat cheeses for a decadent yet guilt-free cheesecake!

    Use regular yogurt, it will be ok. My husband hates Greek yogurt , we won't buy it at all, and our teens noticed it when I tried to fake them out by putting it in other foods. - 4/15/2015 7:28:40 AM
  • greek yogurt mixed with half of a ripened avocado = perfect hair conditioner. - 4/14/2015 11:35:50 AM
  • Yes Achanso, these will also work with regular/plain nonfat yogurt. I have started using it as a milk substitute as I've had some on hand & didn't have milk. I have 3 kids plus my husband & myself and we go through milk FAST! I have used it in macaroni & cheese, mashed potatoes & even suasage gravy! My kids are particular & do not taste the difference! They are adult/teenagers - 21, 17 & 16! I just mix some yogurt with some water until it's the desired consistancy I want. For me that would be 1% milk consistancy & viola!!! - 4/7/2015 3:04:12 PM

  • I am Greek myself and I already knew some of the ideas, as tzatziki that is extremely popular here. On the other hand, some of them never had popped in my mind! what delicious ideas! and I am very proud that Greek yogurt is so unique and tasty ;) - 7/29/2014 11:42:13 AM
  • thank you :) - 7/18/2014 8:57:18 PM
  • I'm wondering if it would also work for regular plain non fat yogurt that wasn't Greek? I realize it isn't as thick but I was thinking it might still work for some of the dips. - 6/24/2014 6:19:57 PM
  • Glad I saw this. I have leftover Greek yogurt from a recipe I made and didn't know what to do with it but today I am making quesadillas and will use it per the recipe in the article. - 6/24/2014 10:47:52 AM
