– 2 cups low-fat Real California cottage cheese – 1 cup plain nonfat Real California yogurt – 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions:

This adaptable dairy dressing is a breeze to make and very versatile. While delicious by itself, what makes it truly "magic" is the ease with which it can be transformed with the addition of a few flavorful ingredients. Following are two variations, but feel free to improvise on your own. Serve as a dip or use as a sauce or dressing on meats, fish, vegetables, salads and fruit. It is also a tasty sandwich spread and makes a great marinade.Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Store refrigerated in a tightly closed container for up to one week.Note: Substitute plain low-fat yogurt if preferred.
