High-Protein Cottage Cheese Veggie Dip with Za’atar
Cottage cheese is having a moment, and I am all for it! To make this high-protein dip, you’ll need a few simple ingredients, including cottage cheese, your favorite veggies, and za’atar seasoning. Za’atar is a flavorful Middle Eastern spice blend made from thyme, oregano, sesame seeds, and sumac.

I love finding ways to enjoy savory cottage cheese. When I bought Nancy’s probiotic cottage cheese, it reminded me of the inside of burrata or the taste of labneh, which inspired this veggie dip. The dill adds freshness, and za’atar gives it a Middle Eastern flavor.
