Cottage Cheese Farm Salad

I had a some cottage cheese and lots of fresh veggies from our CSA. A little googling led me to Grandpa's Home Cooking.

  • 1 tomato (heirlooms preferred; quarter and slice into chunks)
  • 1 cucumber (quarter and slice into chunks)
  • 1 bunch of green pencil onions (sliced thin)
  • 1 fist full of fresh basil leaves (chopped)
  • 24 oz container of large curd, 4% milk fat cottage cheese
  • A pretty serving bowl
  • Salt
  • Pepper

  1. Empty the contents of the cottage cheese container in a bowl. Add the tomato and cucumber chunks, round pencil onion slices, and chopped basil. Stir the vegetables and cottage cheese together. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Spoon into a pretty serving bowl and set it on the table.

Notes: I know not everyone is a fan of cottage cheese, but I am, and I really enjoyed this salad. The crunch of the cucumbers and the flavor of fresh basil make the dish.

This looks wonderful and definitely reminds me of summer/fall. My husband loves cottage cheese, and this is a great way to spruce it up and enjoy as a side dish. Thanks for sharing this!
