This variation of regular sour-cream ranch dip has been a hit at all the parties I've made it for. Makes a lot, and can be served with potato chips, veggies, or bread.

This was ok but very "ranch-y" tasting. I should have followed others advice and cut back on the ranch dressing mix but I wanted to follow it exactly the first time and see. People liked it ok but didn't love it and I had a lot leftover. I'll cut the amt in half next time and half again for the ranch. Cottage cheese was interesting I used small curd and it wasn't too chunky. Read More

I made this for our Super Bowl party and it was very good. I halfed the recipe and omitted the cottage cheese. The cayenne pepper adds a little kick to it. Had this with with veggies and chips. I recommend this one. Read More

Warning: This makes a ton of dip and is addictive. The cottage cheese gives it a texture that is sooooo yummy (think chunks in bleu cheese dressing). I used the big container of cottage cheese 1 lb 8 oz because 8 oz was not enough. I also used a heap of the dip in mashed potatoes, very garliky and good. I used garlic powder in leiu of the garlic salt. I was worried about too much salt with the dry ranch dressing being so salty. I can't wait to make it again. Read More

I love this dip and I have been making it for a long time. My suggestion is to make sure that you are using the ranch "dressing" mix and not the ranch "dip" mix. I also puree the dip because I like a more smoothe consistency. That is just a personal preference and will differ person to person. This is great with chips and veggies and anything else that someone may want to dip into ranch dip! Read More

I cut this recipe in half. I used SD's dry ranch dressing mix (which is also from this site), reduced fat mayonnaise, reduced fat sour cream and "Trim" cottage cheese. Because there was garlic/onion powder in the dry ranch dressing mix, I did not add the extra garlic salt or onion powder. We thought this was quite good. I liked using the cottage cheese as it was little change up from the usual nonfat plain yogurt that I usually use in my homemade lowfat ranch dip. NOTE: I did run the cottage cheese through the blender as I have three boys who have issues with chunky cottage cheese dip and it sailed right past them. Read More

First of all I halved the recipe, substituting finely minced onions for the onion powder and garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Even still, my mother and I thought it was way too salty. The people I served this to at the meeting all seemed to love it. I think the next time I would not use quite all of the ranch packet mix, to reduce the saltiness. Also, per personal preference, I think I will up the cayenne a tad. Read More
