Garlic Dill Dip/Spread October 11, 2011

Jamie says:  My latest food kicks are dill and dips.  This is quite interesting since I really never cared for dill and I’m not the biggest dip fan. I think I’m enjoying them so much because it’s new untrodden territory (somewhat like the new formatting of this blog post; what do you think?).  My original intention for the Garlic Dill Dip/Spread was for a sandwich using the leftover pork meatballs and sauce from dinner last night.  Dad made the meatballs, but if your looking for a recipe, try my version of Grandma’s recipe for pork meatballs.  They’re great, too!

This creation turned out to be quite tasty.  I then thought that Garlic Dill Dip/Spread would be good on sandwiches, as well.  (Insert your favorite sandwich toppings e.g. turkey, ham, or chicken and lots of sandwich veggies, into the picture below.)

And why can’t a spread become a dip?  Just add some good chips and you got yourself a tasty, high protein dip.  By the way, have you tried the new Terra Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt yet?  They are quite tasty and have lots of vitamin A.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz container cottage cheese (Breakstone’s 2% with live and active cultures)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp dill
  • 1 Tbsp sweet onion, chopped

Directions:

  1. Combine cottage cheese, garlic powder, dill, and chopped onion in a bowl.
  2. Serve as a dip (e.g. with chips, such as Terra Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt) or spread (e.g. on a sandwich, like a pork meatball sandwich).  Enjoy!

Serves: 1

  • Nutrition note:  Use Garlic Dill Dip/Spread as a substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise, or dip.  It has more protein, less fat, and fewer calories than an equal amount of sour cream or mayonnaise.
