Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip Review

I was one of the lucky bloggers chosen to try out  Marzettis Otria Greek Yogurt Dips.   I have to admit, when it comes to any kind of dip or spread I generally prefer to make my own.  Once in a while if I have a coupon or see something on sale I may buy it and give it a try.  Not to mention it's always good to have something in the fridge "just in case." That's what happened here, I was given the opportunity to try out Marzettis Otria Greek Yogurt Dips.    Unfortunately, my local store didn't have many to choose from when I went so I ended up trying  the Spinach Artichoke Dip.  I would have loved to try the Chipotle Cheese or the Salsa Cilantro.  The dip I tried  had a great texture, it is thick enough to stay on your vegetables, bread or crackers - or whatever your dipper of choice is.  You can even see the vegetables in this dip too and the flavor of the yogurt comes through as well.  I am a big fan of Greek yogurt so this was a definite plus for me. This veggie dip has only 60 calories per serving and contains Omega 3 as well as protein from the Greek yogurt.  This is a good dip to have on hand when you need something quick or if your looking for a healthier snack option.  And I definitely plan on trying some of the other fabulous flavors as soon as I find them. Incidentally, you can go to the website for help locating a store near you that has these dips.

I was browsing around the Marzettis Otria Greek Yogurt Dip web site and I noticed that it is full of some great recipes you can make with the different dips.  For lunch tomorrow, I am thinking of making Spinach Artichoke Pizza - how good does that sound?  Its pretty easy too.

I also noticed a recipe for a tuna sandwich using the Marzetti® Otria® Garden Herb Ranch Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip - what a great alternative to using mayo in a tuna salad!  I love that idea.  Which flavor dip sounds good to you?  How would you serve it?
