Cottage Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mama smurf

A recipe from Gooseberry Patch Light & Easy recipe cookbook. I love cottage cheese and vegetables so this was just up my alley. There are other recipes out there but this is just a little different.

Very healthy yet easy to make. I used fresh organic ingredients some of which came from our CSA box last week. I blanched the cauliflower and broccoli for about 45 seconds in boiling water, drained then quickly submerged in cold water to stop the veggies from cooking any further. The cauliflower and broccoli were chopped small in a mini food processor, too, before adding to the mixture. Local Nancy's cottage cheese was used and the mixture was served over greens-mostly arugula. A light sprinkle of smoked Spanish paprika for standard to add a bit of "kick". Thanks for posting! Really good! Reviewed for Australian/NZ Recipe Swap #50.
