Best Healthy Creamy Garlic Herb Dip

Necessity is the mother of invention, or so they say, whomever "they" are! When I needed a healthy snack to have around the house for the returning college students, this dip popped in my head: cottage cheese whipped into creamy deliciousness with garlic and herbs. What's not to love!

Whether you eat it with raw veggies or sour cream and onion thick cut potato chips, it's healthy and filling - not the potato chips perhaps, but the dip is!

This would make a great addition to any 4th of July picnic, an easy way to get veggies into your Independence Day festivities.

This is literally a snap to whip up and if you haven't discovered the ease and joy of fitting a small mouth mason jar on your blender for making such dips, do it with this recipe; you will never go back to your carafe!

Creamy Garlic Herb Dip
(makes 2 cups)

1 15 oz container cottage cheese (2% or 4% works well either way)
1/3 cup water
1 clove garlic, grated
1/2 tablespoon dried dill
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried basil

Blend all ingredients in a blender and adjust for salt and pepper. Serve with vegetable crudite, crackers, breadsticks or whatever your heart desires!
