Fresh Sautéed Onion Dip

I loved the Sabra Tzatziki so much that when I saw their Fresh Sautéed Onion Dip sitting beside its Tzatziki cousin I could not resist.  Again, while it tastes sinfully it is in actuality really not that bad from a fat and calorie standpoint. 

Like the Tzatziki it only has 1.5 grams of fat and only 30 calories per 1 ounce serving.The dip itself is very rich and creamy with a good amount of sautéed onions swimming throughout.  Now, if you are expecting something akin to the wonderful but terribly fatty premade French Onion dips that are out there – look elsewhere.  This is a much lighter and actually more refreshing take on the classic dip of yesteryear.  GFM loves him some fat-filled sour cream-based dips but a change is nice from time to time.  This dips is versatile as well, from a baked potato to chips to veggies it holds up well and pairs terrifically.  Do give it a try if you can find it at your local grocery.  Oh, and if you want to be naughty, try mixing in a good amount of parmesan cheese.  GFM did and it was De-lish with a capital “D”.  Check out Sabra’s complete product line online.

Fresh Tzatziki

I am a huge snack fan and have always enjoyed Sabra’s Hummus varieties so was excited to see they were branching out into dips – and healthier dips at that.  Their Fresh Tzatziki dip was delicious.  Sabra knows Mediterranean food and this dip does not disappoint.  It is wonderfully rich and creamy chock full of sautéed cucumber making for a thick dip.  When you take your first bite you notice the subtleness of the yogurt then the cool, crisp cucumber, rounded out by a nice bite of garlic and tart lemon juice.

Perhaps the best part of this product is that it is low fat with only 1.5 grams per serving.  From a calorie standpoint it is only 25 calories per 1 ounce serving.  I love this dip on toast (taking me back to my European childhood) or as a proper dip for chips or crackers.  Tzatziki is an enormously versatile dip so don’t be afraid to try it with whatever you fancy.  Check out Sabra’s complete product line online.
