Portions:
12

Serving Size:
3 tablespoons

    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis
  • Lower Protein

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco® hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup crumbled  blue cheese

Preparation

  1. Blend cottage cheese, sour cream, green onions, hot sauce and spices in food processor until smooth.
  2. Add blue cheese and process for a few seconds.
  3. Garnish with chopped green onion, if desired. 

Helpful hints

  • Dip stores well, which enhances cheese and garlic flavors. If storing for more than three days, reduce blue cheese and garlic.
  • Natural, unprocessed sharp cheddar can substitute for blue cheese. Recipe limits the blue cheese to 1-1/3 teaspoon per serving.
  • Other spices can be added to taste. Experiment!
  • This dip is lower in phosphorus and higher in protein than many comparable recipes.
  • Pair with low-sodium crackers, raw veggies, sliced apples or low-salt tortilla.
