I use cottage cheese in mine, olive oil drizzled, not stirred, and a bit of lemon juice.
I make too much, any ideas to help use it up?
Use it as a topping to lamb/beef/chicken like you would in a kebab.
Top a baked potato in its jacket with it.
Take out the middle of a small tomato (like a large cherry) and fill with hummous as an appetiser or as part of a side salad to a main meal.
Use as a sauce for sausages instead of tomato sauce.
Put on fish.
Use as a sandwich spread instead of marg/butter, and fill with lots of salad.
How about with apple and cheddar as a late afternoon nibble with a glass of chardonnay?
