Makes about 2 cups


This is a recipe for a zesty dip utilizing California’s bounty of fresh produce.  It is moderately hot and zesty, yet the mint and other fresh ingredients give it simultaneously a cooling and refreshing effect.


1, 16-ounce carton dry small curd cottage cheese

1 cup favorite chunky salsa

1 green onion, chopped small, including the greens

4 teeth of garlic, finely minced

1 Serrano chili, seeded and finely minced (optional)

2 to 3 tablespoons finely minced fresh mint

2 tablespoons finely minced fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon finely minced fresh herb dip

1 teaspoon sugar

Salt and fresh coarse ground black pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together and chill before serving.  Garnish with a slice of fresh lime and a sprig of fresh herbs.  This dip is excellent with either chips or cut vegetables.
