Absolutely ! I can even get my kid to do this one, I also use Greek yogurt with Dill and Green onion on our sandwiches instead of Mayo :) I buy the big container of Oikos that's fat free and plain!

Yes!! It's an awesome alternative. There's a chart that shows you how to use it -- I found it on someone's blog, it's really helpful. http://cdn.iowagirleats.com/wp-content/upl oads/2012/06/ChobaniConversionChart_we b_final.png?139d23

Totally works! As long as it's the plain kind, of course, not sweetened with anything else (some "greek" yogurt is also flavored I've noticed in the store). Since I always have plain greek yogurt on hand and never sour cream, it's generally an economical choice for me too!

I always use greek yogurt instead. I don't even notice a difference.

I use it as sour cream all the time....there s very little difference in taste. I have not oughten sour cream for more than 2 years. Even low cal/light sour cream is not healthy, Greek yogurt is!

Like others said, the taste might be a bit different, but try it out! I use greek yogurt as a replacement for sour cream and heavy cream all the time in mashed potatoes, pasta dishes, etc. It's great!
