    SusieQusie's Note:

    Prize-tested winner from BHG magazine in the spreads for muffins, toast and bagels category. I've changed the cottage cheese and sour cream to fat free/low fat versions but if you're not dieting, hey, go for the big guns! ;-)

      This is a great treat for low fat! I made a batch tonight and had some of the dip with crackers. I have some wheat rolls, so I will try it in the morning. I can only imagine it'll get better once it's refrigerated overnight. I don't mind if the cherries bleed, I think it'll be prettier that way. This is definitely worthy of being put out at a party, too.

      I made this yesterday and I am eating today as I write this. It is very good! I am just eating it like a salad though ;-) I tried it on crackers and didn't care for that, but I really like it better alone. I also used craisins instead of the cherries, only because that's what I had on hand. I'm thinking this might be really good rolled in a lettuce leaf as a light lunch. Thanks for sharing this SusieQusie!
