Recipe by Mimi in Maine
Do you want a substitute for sour cream or mayonnaise? If you are doing Weight Watchers it is only 3/4 point for 1/4 cup if you use the low-fat cottage cheese. If you use the regular cottage cheese it is only 1 point for 1/4 cup. You can use it as mayonnaise on a sandwich and almost not have to count it. I got this recipe from a low-fat cook book. I have tried it as a mixture for cole salw. You can add some herbs or flavorings of your choice and you will have a dip or a salad dressing. Use a blender or by do this by hand. A food processor tends to break the mixture down and make it watery rather than creamy. Put it in a plastic container and store in the refrigerator to use by the cup or spoonful.
