What goes into Cottage Cheese Green Goddess Dip

For starters, I use 4% milk-fat cottage cheese and drain any excess liquid from it.  The full-fat cottage cheese seems to make a more sturdy dip.  Next, I use herbs from my garden, typically basil, mint, chives, and parsley.  You can use other green herbs like tarragon or oregano, I just happen to like this flavor combination of herbs.  I add an avocado to increase the healthy fat ratio in the dip.  I look for a ripe, almost overripe avocado and mash it before I add it to the food processor.  I also add a little garlic and lemon juice.  The lemon juice keeps the dip looking fresh and green.

What to serve with Cottage Cheese Green Goddess Dip

I feel like this is best with stick-style vegetables or rounds like cucumber circles.  The sticks are strong and hold a lot of dip!  This dip is also delicious with toasted naan.  For a really bumped-up flavor profile, use garlic naan.  Toasted bread sticks work very well with this dip, too.  Good crackers will work well with the dip, especially whole wheat-style crackers.
