But creamy dips aren't always so helpful for the waistline, and since we are all more conscious these days about what we are feeding our kids, I was super excited to try Hidden Valley's newest Greek yogurt products, one for making dip and another for salad dressing.
I've been a big fan of Hidden Valley's ranch mixes for a long time and I toss one into my shopping cart just about every time I go to the store. Not only do they make the most delicious ranch dressing ever, these packets are great for flavoring mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes and even oven-fried chicken.
These new Hidden Valley Greek yogurt products can be mixed with non-fat Greek yogurt to make a high-protein, low-fat salad dressing or dip. You get all of that great ranch flavor with none of the guilt.
Spring and summer weather cries out for a cool and creamy dip. To make something I knew my kids would yum up, I added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, a can of Mexicorn and a little reduced-fat cheddar cheese to some Greek yogurt along with a packet of Hidden Valley Greek Yogurt Dips Mix. It only takes a few minutes to make.
The packet of Hidden Valley provides plenty of seasoning for this dip, but you could also add a little cayenne pepper if you wanted to spice it up.
Serve with an array of fresh vegetables for a healthy snack you can feel good about eating. This skinny fiesta ranch dip is so full of flavor, you'll never miss the fat!
