  • 400 g/ 14 oz cottage cheese Note 1
  • 4 tablespoons yogurt or sour cream Note 2
  • a bunch of chives
  • 10 radishes
  • fine sea salt


  • Mix together cottage cheese and yogurt or sour cream. Crush the cottage cheese with a fork first, if you want the spread to have a smoother consistency.
  • Chop the chives finely and the radishes finely. Add both to the cheese and mix well. Add salt to taste.
  • Serve with dark rye bread, pumpernickel, or crispbread. Or serve as a dip for raw vegetable sticks.



  1. You can also make the dip with quark.
  2. You can use Greek yogurt (low-fat or full-fat), quark (low-fat or full-fat), sour cream, smetana, creme fraiche, cream cheese. The dip made with yogurt or low-fat versions of a product will taste lighter and more refreshing. When made with smetana, creme fraiche and full-fat products will taste milder and heartier.
  1. The nutrition is calculated with low-fat yogurt. If you use sour cream instead one portion will have 63 calories.
