My brother's favorite way to eat cottage cheese! He's been eating cottage cheese this special way for years. I promised him I'd post the recipe online so that our family's culinary history is recorded for all mankind. Here ya go, RamBo!
- 2⁄3 cup fresh cottage cheese
- 2 -3 tablespoons red onions, diced small (only red onion)
- 1 dash black pepper
- Place cottage cheese in small serving dish.
- Stir in the red onion or garnish the red onion on top.
- Add a few dashes of black pepper.
I am usually a fruit and cottage cheese girl, but this recipe grabbed me as a change for my breakfast this morning. The sweet onions had just the right bite to contrast with the creaminess of the cottage cheese. Served it up with a glass of low-sodium V8 juice and had a quick and healthy light meal.
I'll give 5 stars for simplicity, and taste, but not necessarily color. I too have eaten cottage cheese this way for years, but mostly when Vidalias are in season. Great summertime snack with some whole wheat crackers! Any "good" onion is good enough. I wouldn't deprive myself of this treat due to not having red onions on hand.
