  • 1 medium garlic clove, finely minced *
  • 2 Tbsp finely snipped chives
  • 1 Tbsp finely snipped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp lowfat (2%) small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup fat-free or lowfat buttermilk
  • 1 pinch of salt and white pepper, to taste


In a blender or food processor, purée the garlic, chives, parsley and vinegar. Gradually add, continuing to purée, the mayonnaise, cottage cheese and buttermilk until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Use immediately.

Makes 3/4 cup dressing.


Black pepper can be used in place of white pepper.


The garlic flavor intensifies and, after 2 hours, will be highly dominant. To avoid this, garlic can be mixed into the dressing about 5 minutes before serving.
