Stir lemon pepper into cottage cheese for a quick and healthy vegetable dip. We like carrots and snow peas, but any crunchy vegetables you have on hand will do.

This recipe would be perfect, but it leaves out one very important step, which is to dip the vegetables into the cottage cheese. Was forced to give this recipe one star. Recommend this one instead, much clearer:

I don't care for the lemon pepper fake stuff. I would just use fresh grated black pepper instead if no fresh lemon or lime available and/or some olive oil and pepper or just plain. It is good that folks got the idea of cottage cheese, it is sooooo good all by itself if a good brand.

Loved it! This made me like cottage cheese. I tried this with a chive cottage cheese which gave it that extra flavor. I also recommend dipping your rice cake in this since they can be bland. It's my favorite snack now Pros: Tasty

A smalll amount will go a long way I used a small amount of lemon pepper. When I tasted it, I thought it had a weird flavor. I brought it to work anyway and tried it with my sugar snap peas and baby carrots. It's really good with the snap peas, which have a strong flavor of their own. The cottage cheese adds some nice moisture and makes you feel like you're eating dip, which is naughty. :) It's okay with the carrots. I'll try changing it up next time, but I'm definitely eating it all today. Pros: Easy

accurate but should mention the lemon pepper edge i will make this a couple of times a week as a change from a spicy salsa. I like cottage cheese with this seasoning so I can enjoy it but one has to like cottage cheese because that is what it is . Pros: quick fast easy andgood texture, Cons: neutral taste

Um ok! Well I would have to say not really what I like. The lemon pepper did not go well for me with the cottage cheese. Using cottage cheese as a dip doesn't work for me. Just like cottage chees in casseroles and by itself that is all.

YUMMY! The lemon pepper is very subtle, but it adds a little something new to plain ole cottage cheese (which I love on it's own anyway). I used just carrots since I'm not a pea fan, but what a great mid-day snack for work or at home! Pros: simple, easy, great to take to work

I would probably put the cottage cheese and lemon pepper into the Magic Bullet (since it holds small amounts well) and "whizzzz" it up to make a much creamer version ..... make it more like a dip
