A fresh dip, great accompanied with crudités, bread sticks or corn chips.
Variations: For people who like a smoother dip, try using cream cheese instead of cottage cheese. Yogurt can substitute the sour cream, and quark the cottage cheese for a lighter version.
sic recipe (without the capers and caraway seeds) can be used as a basis for a variety of other dips. Why not try a dried tomato dip (add 8 chopped, dried tomatoes and a tablespoon chopped basil leaves), an olive dip (add 12 chopped green or black olives and 1 teaspoon dried herbes de provence), or an onion dip (do not add any uncooked onions, but brown 2 chopped onions in a little olive oil, leave to cool slightly and add to the basic recipe)?
