Tangy pineapple and fresh green pepper seem an unlikely match, but mixed into the creamy cottage cheese with a dash of marjoram, it's a fresh and healthy alternative to sweeter dips.
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons crushed pineapple chunks
1 teaspoon minced green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon crushed dried marjoram
1 cup strawberries, rinsed and hulled
1 apple, cored and diced
1 honeydew melon, seeded, rind removed and diced
- Blend cottage cheese in a blender, or mash until smooth. Add crushed pineapple chunks, finely chopped green bell pepper, lemon juice, and marjoram; blend well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
