I actually made this dressing…not too bad…a little sweet for my taste buds so i added a small amount of Sriracha hot sauce to spice it up a bit. It is much like a Thousand Island Dressing…but a little sweeter. The use of cottage cheese in place of mayonnaise is interesting…took a blender to actually get it smooth.
