Greek yogurt is selling like hotcakes, so it’s no surprise that it has migrated into other products, including dips. Our tasters found three Greek yogurt dips that are very good. Per 2-tablespoon serving, they have 25 or 30 calories and 1 to 2.5 grams of fat—far less of both than three sour-cream-based dips we checked. Those had at least 100 calories and 10 or 12 grams of fat per serving. (Learn how to make your own Greek yogurt.)

Cucumber dill

Very Good

  • Cedar’s Tzatziki, 42 cents per serving. Smooth, with plentiful crunchy cucumber bits, dill, and garlic. Great as a topper for baked potatoes, a dip for pita and vegetables, or a sandwich spread.
  • Oikos, 25 cents per serving. Smooth and mild. Tastes freshly made and seems lower in fat than others. Its mildness makes it a good base for additional ingredients.

Good

  • Sabra, 38 cents per serving. Smooth, with dill and slightly crunchy, pickled cucumber pieces.
  • Marzetti Otria Feta, 49 cents per serving. Smooth, with dill and some cheese chunks. Sweet and tangy notes.

Spinach

Very Good

  • Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Spinach and Kale, 25 cents per serving. Very thick, with lots of crunchy green veggies. Mild dairy, herbs, and spices. Best as a spread for a cracker or sandwich.

Good

  • Cedar's, 42 cents per serving. Thick with plentiful spinach of variable freshness and crunchy water chestnuts.  Garlic and onion notes.  

Herb

Good

  • Heluva Good Herb Ranch, 24 cents per serving. Smooth and flavorful, with distinct onion and tiny crunchy vegetable bits.
  • Oikos Vegetable and Herb, 27 cents per serving. Smooth, with very tiny nonspecific vegetable bits. Mild flavored.
