Deliciously healthy greek dip – made with a protein-rich cottage cheese & ranch layer, then topped with cucumbers, green onions, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. Healthy and full of flavor!
If there’s one thing I could tell you about myself and my relationship with food, I would admit to being a big snacker.
It’s probably my diet downfall. I love nibbling here and there, mostly just because I can’t commit to one single thing to eat. Must eat ALL the things!
If we get invited to a party, you know I’ll be the one to bring the dip! But do you know what’s even more important than the dip? The crackers.
If you bring gross crackers…guess what? Your dip will sit there, uneaten. No joke. (I might have learned this the hard way… 😉 )
Now I only bring Breton crackers to serve with my favorite dips. Breton crackers are the bomb! They’re the best tasting crackers and are perfect for dipping. Everyone is a fan of them, too. Breton recently came out with new gluten-free flavors and I was lucky enough to be able to try them all.
The newest flavors are Herb & Garlic, Original with Flax, White Bean with Salt & Pepper and one of my favorites, Black Bean with Onion & Garlic.
All Breton crackers are certified gluten free by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness Gluten Free Certification Program. They also taste absolutely delicious – and I’m sort of a cracker snob, ha!
In the Black Bean with Onion & Garlic flavor, beans are the main ingredient and listed first on the nutritional label. Each serving contains two grams of fiber and two grams of protein. These new crackers are also low in saturated fat, contain no artificial colors or flavors, no cholesterol and are trans-fat free. They add such a rich flavor to this Healthy Greek Dip.
You’ll never guess what this dip is made out of! The bottom layer is made from blending together a dry ranch seasoning packet with low-fat cottage cheese! Who would have thought blending those two things together could taste so good?
When it’s all blended together, you can’t taste the cottage cheese. At ALL. It just tastes like a creamy ranch dressing. But it has less calories and so much more protein. Add on some layers of cucumbers, green onions, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and feta cheese – and you have yourself the best healthy greek dip EVER!
Plus it’s completely gluten-free, healthy and delicious! Your guests will love this healthy greek dip!
