I was given the opportunity to try out some of the new Greek yogurt-based dips from Litehouse a while back. While our family are generally not "creamy" dip fans (we'll take salsa over ranch), the meat-eaters do love the occasional Greek-inspired meal of marinated chicken or pork souvlaki with rice and tzatziki, or Greek salad, potatoes and pita bread with the same cool, cucumber-dill dip. With the Opadipity "Cucumber Dill" product, it made prepping for family BBQs a little less hectic (no need to grate cucumbers and mince garlic), and we even discovered a new topping for our burgers! Spread onto foccacia or pita bread, the Cucumber Dill Dip was delicious, especially with turkey and salmon burgers, and with only 50 calories per two-tablespoon serving (as opposed to mayonnaise, which has 200 calories for the same amount!) it's a lighter, more flavourful way to jazz up summer eating.
While I can't speak for the other flavours (like I said, we're not a huge fan of "ranch" dressings, nor are we huge spinach dip people), the Cucumber Dill is definitely a winner and I recommend it!

Skinny Dip This Summer: Litehouse Launches New
Opadipity Greek Yogurt Dips
Expanding the Consumer Favorite OPA Line, Litehouse Gives Consumers a New Way to Enjoy Big Flavor with Fewer Calories
Sandpoint, Idaho – The combination of Greek Yogurt and savory flavors for a creamy, delicious and better-for-you dip seems like serendipity – but it didn’t happen by chance – it happened by Opadipity. Litehouse® Foods, the nation’s premier salad dressing, dip, herb and cheese company, is expanding last year’s sensation, OPA! Greek Yogurt Dressing, into a new category with the launch of Opadipity Greek Yogurt Dips to give consumers even more ways to enjoy the delicious flavors Litehouse is known for combined with the low calorie creaminess of Greek yogurt.
“Opadipity is right in line with several trends: consumers are seeking Greek yogurt and products that include it as an ingredient, they are snacking at a higher rate than ever before and are looking for healthier options,” said Jake Oliver, Assistant Brand Manager, Litehouse Foods. “Opadipity delivers a better-for-you snack that is delicious, convenient and can be used in a myriad of ways.”
The exploding growth of Greek yogurt, coupled with the success of OPA sets the stage (or should we say table), for Opadipity, which uses Greek yogurt as a base, allowing for a thick, creamy consistency with fewer calories and more protein. The dips are also gluten-free with no preservatives or MSG.
They come in four mouth-watering and crowd-pleasing flavors:
- Opadipity Creamy Ranch (60 calories/2g protein)
- Opadipity Chipotle Ranch (60 calories/2g protein)
- Opadipity Cucumber Dill (50 calories/2g protein)
- Opadipity Spinach Parmesan (70 calories/2g protein)
