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.

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 Read More

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 Read More

Not bad. The lemon pepper gave the cottage cheese a little bit of a kick to it. I probably won't make it again but then again I like to eat cottage cheese plain. Read More

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 Read More

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: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/249325/cucumbers-cottage-cheese/ Read More

I really didn't like the lemon pepper in the cottage cheese. I dumped the dip and ate the veggies plain! Read More

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. Read More
