MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2012

No one knew it was cottage cheese. Tasted great. I did use a dill powdered mix instead of ranch dressing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2009

I submitted this recipe so long ago that I now make it much differently. Now I use more like 1 tbls dill, 2-3 tsp granulated garlic, some dried parsley and black pepper (and sometimes onion powder). I do it a little different every time, but I agree that it needs more flavor than as written above.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 23, 2009

I tried this recipe, and I found that it needs... something. It was on the bland side, but the texture was excellent! I wonder if the prepared ranch dressing was eliminated and substituted for ranch dressing dry mix if that would increase the flavor. If someone tries this, would he/she post their results with their combination? Thanks!
