Easy Cottage Cheese Dip

Are you ready for a BRILLIANT idea?! This is one of those ideas that seems so simple and when you hear it, you almost want to slap yourself for not coming up with it in the first place. We went to celebrate Thanksgiving at my uncle’s house this year. One of our relatives, Aunt Tamala, brought this dip and literally had everyone stumped as to what was in it.

That’s when she told us.

Cottage cheese. Garlic salt. Puree. Whaaaaa? Yes. Wh have I never thought to puree cottage cheese before? It is that simple and SO good! Yes I know, two ingredients is that big of a deal of a recipe. BUT its how these ingredients transform and the simple flavor they create that makes this appetizer so desirable. Serve with pita bread slices and you have yourself the easiest appetizer that will be gone almost as fast as it hits the table :)

    i've had a cottage cheese dip before. it was good, but it wasn't pureed. i think that would make all the difference! yum! definitely trying this.

    This is great! I would never have guessed that was cottage cheese! Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best ones :)

    I'm so excited to give this a try.
    I've done the ranch packet and tub of cottage cheese and that is super good. But this is even easier!

    I am a black pepper devotee..and often have it on cottage cheese. That would be a nice 3rd ingredient !

    Our family has made a garlic cottage cheese dip for many years. We use 1 block of creamed cheese, one pint of cottage cheese, garlic salt or powder, squirt of brown mustard, salt and pepper and a little mild if needed. Great with potato ruffled chips.

    We make this but also add cream cheese and half and half. And we dont puree the cottage cheese. Been a Thanksgiving tradition for years!!
