I did not have cottage cheese or yogurt but i used all the other ingredients and added a few of my own. I had no idea what I was doing but I decided to wing it and my husband LOVED IT! I added worchershire (sp?) sauce, garlic powder, crushed red pepper, tobasco and horseradish. It was AWESOME!!! Just knowing what to base it on and then adding what we liked was perfect. Thanks for the base! :-)

I found the yogurt to give a funny taste to the sauce. I may substitute for the yogurt next time.

everyone loved this sauce. People were taking so much you couldn't see their crab cake underneath it. It was a huge hit.

This sauce is so easy to make and wonderful to taste. It keeps well in a covered jar.

I didn't use the cottage cheese, but added a bit more cayenne pepper and a dash of hot sauce, biy was it yummy!!

This wouldn't be my favorite recipe for sauce. I sub'd the salsa with horse radish as another reviewer suggested. It was good but not outstanding.

Very good with crab cakes. Slightly runny even after refrigeration, but good nonetheless. I served this sauce with crab cakes for my in-laws, and my father-in-law couldn't get enough of it. It's really good for dousing because it's not strong-flavored. A creamy, cocktail sauce taste!

Very, very easy to make. I made exactly to recipe for 6 servings and it made way more than enough for 6, 3oz. crab cakes except used medium salsa instead of hot. I'd like a bit more flavor but my mom and sis are sensitive to spicy foods and thought it had "a bite". Personally, I'd use the hot salsa next time and add a bit more cayenne pepper. Thanks for posting this simple sauce.
