 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       oz           Container lowfat cottage
                         Cheese
    2       tb           Buttermilk
    1       t            Lemon juice
 
   Contributed to the echo by: Randall Chrisman This is
   something that a friend of mine learned in her efforts
   to cut down on the amount of fat in her diet. Seems
   she and her husband were quite fond of sour cream
   (being the kind of people that would toss it onto the
   potato and not stop until you couldn't see the
   potato!) This is a really great substitute for the
   topping...such to the point that I'm not fond of sour
   cream anymore. Optional:
   
   Schilling Cheese Sauce Mix Hidden Valley Reduced
   Calorie Ranch
   
   Mix the Hidden Valley Blue Cheese Dressing MIX. Dump
   the cottage cheese, buttermilk and lemon juice into a
   food processor with metal blade. Process until smooth
   (and I mean SMOOTH...can turn grainy unless you give
   it time...when you think it’s done, process it some
   more.) When it’s done, you have the option of blending
   in any of the powdered dressing mixes (we use 3/4
   package for flavor - more than that and you've reduced
   your fat intake and TRIPLED your sodium intake.) You
   need to pour the contents back into the cottage cheese
   container and let it set for an hour or so.
