Horseradish Dill Cottage Cheese Dip
Cottage cheese, horseradish and dill come together to make an easy, protein packed dip that is not only healthy but packed with flavor. Horseradish Dill Cottage Cheese Dip for the win.
When I cleaned up the photos on my computer a few weeks back, I had no less than 40 iPhone snapshots of recipes I’d either seen in a magazine or ideas from a menu in a restaurant that I’d like to recreate. I’m weird that way. Or maybe not. Do you do the same? I was trying to clear some clutter off my laptop and these photos of random recipes and ideas (long forgotten, mind you) were one of the first things to go. I wrote down the ones that really stuck out and got rid of the rest.
I knew I wanted to recreate this recipe because of it’s ease, that fact that it’s base is cottage cheese and mostly because it involves prepared horseradish- the most underrated condiment if you ask me. Horseradish is one of those things that you either love or hate. I happen to adore it. I use it in recipes all the time. Tacos, sandwiches, as a dip for steamed artichokes….I always have a jar (or two) in the fridge. Bubbies brand prepared horseradish is my favorite as it’s the perfect pungency. You could use low fat cottage cheese here but you’d lose the texture and richness of a whole milk cottage cheese. The dip is best after it sits for at least an hour so the flavors can meld and mellow. This is as easy as it comes. Feel free to forgo the pretty bowl and serve it right from the container!
I’ve been eating this dip like no one’s business. It’s tasty plopped onto scrambled eggs for a healthy protein packed breakfast and it’s a great dip for celery sticks or Homemade Bagel Chips.
Have a great day! xoxoPrint

Nice easy recipe and I love horseradish and cottage cheese. Have a Great Week!
Do you use creamy horseradish?
I don’t. I use prepared horseradish.
Kelley, I just found your site and am thrilled. I just began the South Beach diet and am adjusting to the diet with use of the books….but so needed encouragement for this diet with more recipe ideas!! you are my answer!!! and have you ever used prepared horseradish in a pot roast? It is awesome ! Just rub the browned meat with the horseradish and continue recipe as usual.
I love horseradish and pot roast together- if you do a search on my site, you’ll see tacos, sandwiches…it’s my favorite combo. So glad to have you here!
Yep. This is my next topping for a baked potato!
What a great ideas! Mine too….
Um, this looks insanely good! I adore horseradish and cottage cheese, but never thought to put them together! Love!
It’s addictive. And so darn easy!
I want this as a snack…right now! Pinning!
It’s the perfect grab and go snack!
Oh my! This is all kinds of perfect! My husband and I will be fighting over this dip!
It’s so easy to make, it’s ridiculous!
This is so awesome! I have never thought to make a flavored dip with cottage cheese. And I am a major cottage cheese fan, and with your bagel chips! Boom, lunch!
Yeah! I love cottage cheese too!
I always make notes on my phone about recipes I want to re-create, but I love the idea of just snapping a picture. I am a big sucker for anything with horseradish or dill. So, yeah…this dip sounds like heaven!
It’s so easy to take a pic though I forget about them after awhile!
I am glad I am not the only one with an obscene amount of recipe photos on my phone! Some of the best recipes come from those moments! Unfortunately, I am on the hate it side of horseradish, but I do loveeee cottage cheese. I am going to try to make a version of this for the hubby and I!
Horseradish is my favorite – can I slather this on a steak to, because that sounds like a totally worthy topping!
great idea! Miss you
Ooo. This will be incorporated into a Deviled Eggs recipe for this Easter. Mmmm.
