i came across this recipe and remembered my mom making her own recipe (i don't think she even used a recipe)of this when i was growing up.


  1. Blend cottage cheese and mustard.
  2. Peel shallot, chop finely and mix with cottage cheese blend.
  3. Wash and dry the chives and snip them finely.
  4. Stir a/b two-thirds of the chives into cottage cheese mixture.
  5. Season the mixture with paprika and add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Sprinkle remaining chives on top.

It's very strange, but when I was a young girl, I hated cottage cheese. Now, I eat it very frequently and love it! I especially loved it, using your recipe, hotmomma! Thnx for posting it! Made for the French Forum Herb of the Month event. May - Chives!

mmm This makes a lovely box lunch!! I made it up to take away, placed it on top of some lettuce, and added some grape tomatoes, radish, carrots, and fruit to the box. I used 1% cottage cheese. Very simple to put together and very tasty too. Nice combination of flavours, didn't have a shallot, so used a garlic clove. I will be making this again, thanks for posting.
