Dill Veggie Dip

Dilly of a Veggie Dip

I have this obsession with Dill Weed and veggie dips...actually I think most of my obsession is carrots. I love carrots. I have seriously been eating them non-stop for the past month or so. I can easily sit there and eat a whole bag of carrots, especially if I have dip.

So this dip is insanely easy and freaken fantastically good. You just need about 5 ingredients and a bowl.

1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup Mayo
1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1-1/2 teaspoons dill weed
1-1/2 teaspoons parsley

Now take the cup of cottage cheese and mash it so there aren't any huge lumps in it. I just press the back side of a spoon all around the cheese for a few minutes. If you like lumps of cottage cheese then really you can skip this step I guess...

Add in the mayo and stir it up. Personally I do not like Mayo at all. Except when it's mixed in with stuff. Like this, but even still I try not to think about the amount of Mayo used.

Next up! Grab your spices. I usually add in a bit more dill than 1-1/2 teaspoons. Why? Because I love dill weed.

Ahh I just discovered the most amazing spice store out here in Phoenix. Literally my new spice heaven. It took all the self-control I had last week to not buy one of 95% of the spices in the store. It's called Penzy's I suggest you look it up or go there or something. So many spices and they all smell SO good!!


Spices, in the bowl with the cottage cheese and mayo. Now just stir it all up and taste test. Need more dill? Parsley? Seasoned salted? Add it in!!

Alrighty, does it taste good? Excellent! Now cover it up and chill it for at least 1 hour to let the flavors sink in.

So that was simple...last week I made, well my boyfriend and I made, homemade burgers with homemade onion rings. The onion rings were buttermilk and sour cream batter with green onion and other spices. Topped with a Spicy Ranch Aoli. Oh my god. Best onion rings I've ever had. I love onion rings... I think I really just love food.

Well there you go! Pretty sure this veggie dip came from someone in my family...
Hmmm I wonder what it would be like with a bit of diced onion in there?
Ideas, ideas...
Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this super simple dip!!

'Til Next Time!!
