    Mymble's Note:

    My grandmom used to serve this tangy yummy dip with celery. It makes a huge difference to use a high quality, strong blue cheese - if you use the cheap supermarket stuff this can be on the mild (I'd say bland) side. I like to use the strongest Spanish blue I can find. If you let it sit a couple of days in the fridge the blue flavor will intensify; you can also get stronger flavor by increasing the ratio of blue cheese to cottage cheese. Good with crackers or crudites; my husband uses it as a sandwich spread (try making one with turkey and tart apple slices); my toddler loves it straight out of a bowl (ever notice there's an "odd" in toddler?). You can use lower fat versions of the cottage cheese or milk without compromising taste, I think.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dip bowls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove rind from the cheese.
    2. 2
      In a medium size deep bowl (I use a 4 cup pyrex measuring cup) break the cheese into pieces.
    3. 3
      Add milk and cottage cheese.
    4. 4
      Blend with a hand blender until smooth (you can blend in a real blender too, but it's more annoying and harder to clean up).
    5. 5
      If consistency is too dense, add more milk and blend again.
    6. 6
      If it's too runny, add more cheese- the proportions are not rigid.

      Wonderful recipe! So simple, easy, and delicious. I served it with veggies, apples, and crackers - I made the dip right before serving and got many compliments.

      Elegant, classy, and deserves the name blue cheese mousse! Didn't add any milk tothis and used a blender, and it came out so smooth and light. The milk would be a welcome addition though if the mix is just to thick to handle. Added some of the leaves from the celery stalks to the blender (lightly filled 1/4 cup) and some freshly ground pepper which enhanced the flavour tremendously. Served with cut up celery stalks and rice crackers. A keeper!
