Great recipe! I've been using greek yogurt in place of sour cream in dip recipes, so it stands to reason it would work here, too. I love greek yogurt. I eat it with frozen fruit almost every day for a snack.

I love using greek yogurt in place of sour cream or cream cheese.

It also makes a nice cheese-cake substitute mixed with sugar free jello pudding mix. I mix a small package of pudding mix into 2 cups of greek yogurt (you can stir it in wit a spoon, don't even need electric beaters).

I sometimes use a little less or a little more greek yogurt than the 2 cups. If I want it very cheesecake like in texutre I'll use less greek yogurt (about 1 to 1.5 cups). If I want it more pudding textured, I'll use more yogurt. Sometimes I add a bit of artificial sweetener or truvia. Usually this isn't necessary but some brands of greek yogurt (I buy whatever is cheapest) are a little tarter than others and likewise some brands and flavors of sugar-free pudding are sweeter than others, so you have to sweeten to your taste.

You can use regular yogurt too, but that's tarter and won't have a cheesecake texture. I like it made with the greek yogurt best.

I'd heard of using non-fat sour cream to make your own dressing, but never Greek yogurt. Gotta try this. Thanks!

Ohhhh!! I'll have to try that!

I can do 1 part mayo to 7 parts non-fat greek yogurt and I like it just as much as straight mayo - which is a HUGE deal since I cant even stand "light" maybe. Greek yogurt is a-ma-zing!

I love ranch dressing!! I have tried this recipe and the almost identical one that uses cottage cheese in the food processor. The yogurt is easier, but I like them both for different reasons. The cottage cheese ends up with a sort of ranch meets bleu cheese type thing from the ground up curds. The greek yogurt is smoother and creamier.
