I leave out the salt. To blend I use my emulsifier.

I can't believe how this turned out - you can't even tell it's cottage cheese! I used dill weed instead of parsley. I will definitely make this again!

Yum! This is a quick, easy and healthy alternative to ranch dressing/dip- and I thought it tasted better than most brands of store bought low-fat ranch. <br/> <br/>I didn't have garlic powder, so I chopped a glove of garlic and added that to the blender. Will definitely make this again!
