  • 2 zucchini, about 1 lb., grated
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 2 scallions (whites and greens), thinly sliced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 2/3 cup flour, plus more if necessary
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 cup Friendship Dairies® cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup Friendship Dairies® sour cream
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup packed basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup parsley leaves
  • 1 tbsp. fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 tbsp. fresh mint leaves
  • 1 large garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper


  1. Place zucchini in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let rest for 10 minutes, then squeeze and discard as much excess moisture as possible. Add cottage cheese, feta cheese, parsley, basil, scallions, egg, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Whisk together flour and baking powder and add, stirring until incorporated and a thick batter is formed. Heat 1 inch of canola oil in a 9-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches add batter 1 tablespoon at a time, gently flattening fritters in pan, being careful not to crowd pan. Fry until golden, 3 minutes per side. Drain and cool briefly on paper towels. Serve with Green Goddess Dressing.
