The light, tangy flavour of German fresh cheese is complemented by chives, shallot fritters and minced garlic for this healthy and tasty dip. It is perfect with crunchy vegetable sticks, crisp baked potatoes, and grilled meat. It is even nice as a spread on a hearty rye bread.

  • 250 g Low fat Quark (German fresh cheese)
  • 70 ml Milk
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp Shallot fritters
  • A handful of chives, chopped
  1. Stir Quark, milk, minced garlic and white wine vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add in shallot fritters and chopped chives. Stir until combined. Garnish with more fritters and chives if desired.

Quark is not a cheese we use much here in the U.S., but I know it's something like cottage cheese and chives and shallots would be perfect in it for a dip. Nice recipe, Angie.
