    twissis's Note:

    Here's a healthy, tasty & low-fat variation on a cucumber salad that provides the creamy texture w/o the use of mayo or sour cream. It uses cottage cheese to do that & my DH has come to like it nearly as well as the mayo or sour cream varieties. This works well as the salad part of a dinner meal, a light lunch & even travels well for a picnic or camping trip. Enjoy!

      Reviewed for Best of 2008 Tag. This is so healthy and delicious! DH and I decided it would be nice to make to carry to work in our lunches. I used a leek (DH's favorite) but most any kind of onion would be nice here. I can't wait for summer tomatoes - they will be very special in this salad. Wonderful recipe twissis - thanks!

      I liked this, sorta reminded me of home. My mom use to make cottage cheese with cucumbers in it all the time and I loved it. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Utterly wonderful! I plan to be eating this all summer. It is thoroughly refreshing. I used an early heirloom tomato and added a stick of diced celery. For more of a meal, I used a full 2 cups of cottage cheese. Delicious.
