Low fat Alternative to Salsa con Queso

Creativity strikes.

Who loves cheesy Salsa con Queso? I do, I do. But with a pound of Velveeta? Oy, too much-80 calories for 2 tablespoons. Who eats just two tablespoons.
Last night I made a salad. Dumped baby greens into a bowl added red pepper and broccoli. I needed dressing. Was tired of Hummus(ha...imagine that). Salsa sat nearby Hummus in the fridge. I mixed them together. But something was missing. Enter shaved parmesan. The result: a pleasant concoction with the same consistency as Salsa con Queso plus a hint of cheese.
The pic above is the Velveeta and Salsa. Mine looked about the same.
