Cottage Cheese and Dill [salad] Dressing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bone Man

This is an old Frugal Gourmet recipe from the early years. The Frugal Gourmet (Jeff Smith) is no longer with us but his very nice and unique salad dressing lives on. Serve it over multi-green salad when you want to impress someone special with both flavor and eye appeal!

I recently purchased The Frugal Gourmet at a thrift store and found this wonderful dressing in it. The original recipes lists white wine vinegar or a lemon juice option. I went with the white wine vinegar as indicated, used low fat cottage cheese and low fat mayo. The milk was reduced by almost half giving a thicker, creamier dressing. This is something I know I will repeat. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend and refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving.
  2. Also low-fat/low-salt mayonnaise and cottage cheese can be used. For best results, I recommend Hellman's new olive oil recipe mayonnaise for this particular recipe. It has a much better flavor than their original mayo.
