Dilly Pesto Cottage Cheese Dip

Eileen Hineline


I found the Pesto Cottage Cheese dip on Facebook but didn't have every ingredient on hand so I decided to tweek the recipe and make it my own and this is the delicious result. My sons do not like cottage cheese at all but my oldest son tried it and actually enjoyed it. I love this dip with my pita chips. I don't have to throw away the cottage cheese either when I forget that it is in my fridge. I will be making this one many times over. enjoy!
