Nothing screams southern more than tomato pie! Never heard of it? Well, it is a savory and comforting side dish made with tomatoes, basil, and a indulgent mayonnaise cheese mixture poured into a pie crust and baked. It is a creative way to use all of those juicy tomatoes from the garden in the summer, but can be enjoyed all year round.

The traditional tomato pie is made with mayonnaise, which can be packed with calories from saturated fat. This lightened up version is made by substituting half of the mayonnaise with Greek yogurt to lower the fat and calorie content. The best part is, nobody will ever know the difference.

Give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed!
