  • Thanks for sharing this recipe! :-)

    I think I would also substitute low fat plain yogurt to mayo, and make my own dressing with olive oil and vinegar. That will add some fat but good fat... :-)

  • I used greek yogurt for the mayo and added olives, eggplant, and artichokes. I've added athenos reduced fat feta before and it's yummy too. Also, once I broiled some whitting and then threw that in as well. Very yummy! Definitely a good starting point for recipes. - 9/26/08
