How to make Cottage Cheese Dip Recipe With Pepper and Olives
To begin making the Cottage Cheese Dip Recipe with Olives; we will first roast the red bell peppers in olive oil.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small wok; add in the chopped red bell peppers. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and stir fry on medium high heat until the pepper have slightly softened. You can either stir in the olives during this step with peppers, or you can just add the olives once the dip is ready.
Also keep your cottage cheese, crumbled and ready. The cheese should be moist and creamy and yet should not have the excess water. Drain any excess water and whisk well to make it smooth. I most often use my fingers to mash well into a smooth texture.
Combine the mashed cottage, the roasted peppers, and 1 more tablespoon of olive oil along with all the other ingredients. Stir well, check for the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. The cottage cheese dip is now ready to be served. You can add the olives now if you hadn't sauted them earlier with peppers.
You can refrigerate this dip for a couple of days and use it as a spread for your sandwiches.
Serve the Cottage Cheese Dip with a warm crusted garlic buttered bread for your parties. You can dip Sweet Potato & Rosemary Crisps/ Chips or Healthy Vegetable Fries Recipe in Cottage Cheese Dip Recipe With Pepper and Olives.
