I seriously will never buy ranch dressing again.  Greek yogurt is my new-found love.  I never cared for the bottled fat-free ranch dressing, so it's really hard for me to eat salads when dieting.  This is amazing, I will be eating many salads in the future.

I love egg salad and eat it at least twice a month.  When you get tired of the same old lunch meat and cheese sandwich, whip up a batch of this.  If you are watching your carbs, serve this on a bed of lettuce instead of toast.
