A Better Foccacia Sandwich


We've got a great picnic recipe to share. Spring is in the air, and I'm dreaming of dining al fresco. This yummy sandwich recipe ditches traditional fattening spreads in favor or protein-packed Greek yogurt. ATHENOS Greek Yogurt is made the Greek way, simply, with respect for ingredients. That's why it is incredibly rich and delicious. From snacks (like the smoothie from last week) to supper, swapping Greek Style yogurt into your recipe plans can leave you a feeling lean and strong by summer. Why? ATHENOS Greek Yogurt has zero grams of fat and twice the amount of protein of regular yogurt!
