And that's saying a lot since non-Greek yogurt is the dairy equivalent of Extacy, judging by the TV commercials in which ordinary women moan with delight over what is essentially fruity sour cream. (Apparently adding the adjective Greek to yogurt makes it more special because it's thicker, has more protein and sounds European -- i.e., superior.)
For the record, I'm a fan of Greek yogurt as long as it's the plain, whole milk variety, like FAGE Total Classic.
You can do pretty much anything with Greek yogurt as you can with sour cream or regular yogurt, such as mix it with cooked cauliflower for cauliflower mash or spoon into a bowl with some nuts and berries for a high protein snack.

Mix the soft bake and the yogurt and cool in the refrigerator for one hour.
Per Ashley, this counts as 1 MF replacement meal and almost half a daily serving of lean.
Another great thing to do with Greek yogurt is make salad dressing out of it. You can do this yourself or just buy one of the great tasting OPA dressings by Litehouse hanging out near the salad fixings at your better supermarkets. I love these dressings so much I even wrote poem about them.
Meanwhile, fans of My Big Fat Greek Wedding are in for a treat since its writer and lead actress Nia Vardalos announced she has written a sequel to that movie. Per Entertainment Weekly, "The film will follow up on Vardalos’ Toula as the revelation of a family secret and a 'bigger, fatter wedding' gathers the Portokalos family together for another go-around. John Corbett is also set to return as Toula’s husband, Ian."
Can't wait to watch this at home with a big salad and OPA dressing and Ashley's cookie dough for dessert.
