I was staring at the freshly cooked salmon that no one wanted to eat. It tasted delicious, but my family was having one of those ‘picky’ moments. They gobbled up the side dishes but wouldn’t touch the tasty salmon. What’s a mama to do? It was time to come up with a salmon cottage cheese dip that would salvage my tasty salmon and produce a ‘second chance’ for my suddenly fussy family.

Easy Cottage Cheese Dip
My family is not usually ‘fish’ fussy. Lately however, any type of fish has their noses turned up. Even my country boy, fishing and hunting husband, took one look at the fish I made last week and made a pizza for himself! The crazy thing is, I used the exact same recipe that used to be raved at by my three men!
It was not an opportunity to take offense, after all, we all go through taste changes and seasons. I remember with vividly my pregnant and nursing months when I was very particular with food!
This was just the ideal situation to make something new!
I had been wanting to experiment with a cottage cheese dip for a while, and this was the perfect excuse to make it into a salmon dip too!
You will find that there is nothing complicated about this recipe, it just requires a little bit of chopping and mixing!
What goes with Dip?
The wonderful thing about most dips is that veggies are always an option to show on the table as a dipping mechanism! Grab those carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, and dip, dip, dip!
