My New Go-To Snack and Ingredient: Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls on behalf of Dannon. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program but my opinions are my own.

For more information and recipe ideas, visit www.oikosyogurt.com or www.Facebook.com/oikos. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I’ll be honest, when I was offered the chance to try Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt I was a bit hesitant. I’ve tried Greek yogurt before and I thought it tasted like sweetened sour cream. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this yogurt. I started with the Honey on the Bottom nonfat yogurt. The first thing I noticed was the texture. It was rich and creamy-thick. Dannon Oikos is creaked through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it this great texture. Because it is so creamy it is perfect for dipping. I served some to my kids with a side of animal crackers and it was a big hit. 

I love giving them treats that I know are healthy and high in protein.

Next, I gave the Dannon Oikos nonfat plain yogurt a try. I’ve used plain yogurt as a substitute for sour cream in the past, so I decided to do the same with the Oikos yogurt. I put a dollop on my chicken soft taco at dinner and it really amped up the flavor! After my substitution success I looked in to other ways to use Greek yogurt. Here are just a few:
*Salad dressing
*On top of a baked potato or in mashed potatoes
*As a meat marinade
*As a mayonnaise substitute in potato or egg salad. 
I’m a big egg salad fan, so I tried Dannon Oikos in my egg salad and it was so good I decided to share the recipe with you:
For a double serving I hard boiled 2 eggs and  mashed them up with with a tablespoon of Dannon Oikos plain yogurt. I added some diced cucumber and tomato, a little garlic pepper and some sea salt. Oh. My. Yumminess.

I intended to put the egg salad on a piece of wholegrain toast, but it didn’t get that far.

I'm so happy to have a new go-to ingredient to cook with. How are you going to eat your Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt?
