I have a house divided on cottage cheese. I personally love it, and enjoy eating it anytime. I enjoy it plain, with fruit for breakfast or even as a late-night snack. My husband, on the other hand, is not a fan … or at least he wasn’t until recently, when I changed his mind with my Greek Cottage Cheese Dip.
I think part of his aversion was due to memories as a kid, when his mother would serve it after dinner. For whatever reason, those thoughts still linger with him, and a bowl of plain cottage cheese is simply unappealing. And I get that. But as a fan, I know cottage cheese can be serve in dozens of tasty ways— including in smoothies, dips and desserts!
To change my husband’s perception, I partnered with Friendship Dairies (purchased at my local Publix) to create a delicious recipe using their cottage cheese. Since we just returned from Greece, I decided to make Greek Cottage Cheese Dip, which turned out amazing. Here’s the recipe.

I didn’t tell my husband that cottage cheese was the base for this dip until after he tried it. He was pleasantly surprised and ended up eating most of it himself! I may have a convert on my hands.
