It is nice to have something light to nosh on while you are putting the final preparations on the big meal. This dip along with potted shrimp (recipe coming soon) is a nice way to wait for the feast. Kids like it too. And remember, no double dipping!
Take 1 cup of cottage cheese and with the back of a ladle push it through a sieve. In the same bowl place 1/2 sour cream, 1 Tbsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. dry mustard, 1/4 tsp. celery seeds, 2 tsp. chopped capers, 2 Tbsp. thinly sliced scallions and mix well. You can easily make this a day ahead.
