Cottage cheese dip with chives and basil

This is a quick and healthy dip, perfect for an afternoon snack with vegetables or an evening appetizer together with some nachos and salsa. You can mix the cottage cheese with what spices, herbs and taste you prefer. Or why not a pesto, sun-dried tomatoes or olives. I have used fresh chives, garlic and basil which made a great taste combination.

Ingredients (4 pers.):

  • 8 oz cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh herbs such as chopped chives, basil, thyme or rosemary (or 1 tsp spices such as smoked paprika)
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Add the cottage cheese, herbs, garlic and salt into a food processor and mix on high speed for about 3 minutes until the mixture has a smooth texture. Keep it in the refrigerator for minimum 15 minutes before serving. After that, the mixture will get a bit thicken and a perfect dip.

  1. What a pretty presentation. It’s so colorful. Are you also into food design photography? Could be. If so, what kind of camera do you use to get your images so crisp? Also…

    I’m curious about one of your featured vegetables. Is it rhubarb? Now I’m wondering (hypothetically) if I sat down and ate a whole bowl of this deliciousness with veggies, could I legitimately consider it a snack? 🙂

    1. Thank you Jen! I am just a hobby photographer, but I’m happy you like my photos. I use a Canon digital camera with a 18-55mm lens.

      The vegetables you see in these photos are carrots in different colors. Beautiful, right? Good question about the snack. Yes, how much is a snack? With the serving you see in these photos, I would say it’s a snack for four people so not for only one person. 😉
