Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip

I’m always looking for ways to help get my kids to eat their veggies.

Oh – who am I kidding? I’m always looking for ways for ME to eat my veggies, too!

I like to dip raw veggies like carrots in ranch dressing to make it a tastier snack, but typical ranch dressing has a lot of calories (and I don’t care for fat-free or lite versions) and I’m kind of bored of the same ol’ same ol’ and want something different….so when I found out about a new product line called Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip that is only 60 calories per serving, I was excited to try it out.

While they have a Garden Herb Ranch product, when I was at the store I picked the Chipotle Cheese flavor because I wanted to try it out on crackers too. Every year on Thanksgiving, I cook dinner and my in-laws join us – so I wanted to have carrot sticks and crackers out with the dip for everyone to try.

It was a hit. My in-laws and my son thought it was yummy both dipped on carrots and spread on wheat thins, it made a great appetizer while dinner was cooking. It was flavorful but not too strong…very creamy and substantial.

And as you can see, it actually made it on the table DURING Thanksgiving dinner as well.

That’s my son Jackson! Eating his veggies. On Thanksgiving. Proud moment!

I can’t wait to try out the Cucumber Dill Feta on sliced cucumbers with dill sprinkled on top (also would be great as a finger sandwhich!) And the Salsa Cilantro with chips.

Thanksgiving break has ended and the kids (relunctantly) went back to school this week. I packed a little container of the dip along with carrot sticks in their lunches.

I found the Marzetti dips at my local grocery store in the refrigerated section by produce were they keep the pre-cut veggies and lettuce in a bag. I spend a lot of time in that area of the grocery store because convenance is important to me when it comes to preparing meals and snacks.

For only $3.49 for a 8.75 ounce package I was able to serve it as an appetizer and in lunches and for several after-school snacks.

They have a lot of cool recipes here. I’m excited to try the spinach artichoke dip on pizza crust with olives, tomatoes and feta cheese, the crunchy corn salsa, cucumber salmon dill appetizer and the fish tacos. Yum! You can put the veggie dip on sandwhiches and wraps as a tasty substitute for mayo or other condiments or in cold pasta salads to give it some zig.

So what do you think? Does it sound good? Have you tried Marzetti products or the Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip yet? What recipes sound good to you?
