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
