Could you use store bought greek yogurt in this recipe?

You can if you want. Just make certain that it’s not flavored and use it in place of the mayonnaise. There’s still a chance that it might alter the taste a bit but I’m certain that it will still taste really good as well.

Plus, greek yogurt has a lot of great health benefits also.
