This light cheese spread tastes similar to the expensive, higher-fat versions sold in grocery stores. Serve with raw vegetables or crackers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the cottage cheese in a food processor and blend until very smooth.
  2. Add the cream cheese and blend briefly to combine.
  3. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  4. Mix in the chives, parmesan cheese, garlic, marjoram, basil, pepper and 3 tablespoons of the parsley.
  5. Place in a small decorative bowl and sprinle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of parsley.

Just the right blending of herbs. I used a cream cheese with nonfat yogurt spread instead of the light cream cheese. It is very spreadable and made excellent dippling.

This was a good low-fat dip, and I don't even like cottage cheese! I think it might be nice on sandwiches, too.
