A touch of cayenne and lemon is the perfect foil to the flavorful crabmeat in our reduced-fat dip. Make it a meal: EatingWell’s Wonton Chips make a great dipper.


  • 1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese, pressed
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 ounces fresh or frozen and thawed crabmeat, well drained and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


Place the pressed cottage cheese and cream cheese in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan and add the garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay seasoning, cayenne and pepper. Heat over low heat until warm, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the crab and lemon juice; stir well. Heat until warm, 30 to 40 seconds. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
