I keep a large tub of Greek yogurt in my fridge at all times. I reach for it most mornings when I am making breakfast, but it’s a staple when I’m making lunch and dinner, too. Really, a bowl of Greek yogurt topped with berries or drizzled with honey is just the beginning. The thick and creamy, protein-packed yogurt can be turned into everything from a marinade to a creamy taco sauce. Here are 5 savory Greek yogurt recipes that will make you love this fridge staple even more.

1. Greek Tzatziki Fish Tacos from Skinnytaste

A creamy cucumber yogurt sauce is the perfect counterpart for these crispy fish tacos. If you have an air fryer, cooking the fish in it will give you even crunchier results, though baking it in the oven works great, too.

3. Yogurt Marinated Greek Chicken from Free Your Fork

Greek yogurt is a brilliant base for chicken marinade because it ensures the meat cooks up to be as moist and juicy as can be. If you don’t have a grill, you can use a grill pan or bake the chicken in the oven.
