Looking for an easy, savory recipe with cottage cheese? This blended cottage cheese dip is so quick to make and tastes delicious!

As a dietitian, I’m happy to share that cottage cheese is chock-full of nutrition benefits (it’s particularly rich in protein). Plus, fresh herbs are super nutritious too!

This dip is perfect to serve with raw veggies, crackers, chips, and it can even be used as a spread (in place of something like cream cheese). I share a bunch of serving ideas for you below.

Enjoy it as a healthy appetizer idea at your next get together, or keep it in the fridge for the week to have as a snack.

What To Serve With Cottage Cheese Dip

This savory cottage cheese dip is best served with:

  • raw, crunchy veggies like cucumber rounds, baby carrots, sliced bell peppers, celery, or even cherry tomatoes
  • crackers of any kind (my favourite healthier options are these almond flour ones and these seed ones)
  • chips (I would opt for a neutral flavour and a sturdier chip)

Other Uses For This Dip

If you’d prefer, this dip can also be used as a spread! It would be great spread over:

  • sandwiches or open-faced toasts
  • bagels
  • crackers
  • cucumber rounds

This dip has a similar texture to cream cheese, so you use it in place of a herbed cream cheese 🙂
