This was delicious. Very refreshing and simple to make. It reminded me of a cucumber yogurt soup that I like to get in Indian restaurants. The lemon juice gives the cheeses that yogurty sort of tang. I know I will make this again too.

I made this to take part in Mirj's Jewish mother cook-a-thon. I didn't eat it for breakfast, but for lunch instead. The feta cheese gave this a nice tang, and the cottage cheese made the dish very creamy in texture. I imagine this would work with yogurt as well. Very easy to make. Thanks for sharing a little bit of Israel with me!

This salad is wonderful!! Bright, fresh flavors, easy-breezy prep, just a delight all the way around. I doubled the recipe for our group and one change I might make next time (and there will be a next time!!) is to not double up on the lemon juice and olive oil when doubling the recipe. It makes it just a tad soupy. But, the flavors were awesome!! One person remarked during dinner how "refreshing" the salad was. And totally yummy, too! Thanks Miraklegirl!

Add me to the accolades!! This is great! I halved the recipe. I did not want it soupy at all, so I just used a drizzle of olive oil, and instead of lemon juice, I used lemon pepper and some diced spanish olives to it. I also used a seasoned feta..with sun dried tomatoes and basil. I topped it all with a sprinkling of dill. I found myself disappointed in the fact that I only made half!!! I will make this over and over again. It's that good!

I've made this countless times and I've started to switch it around -- i used yogurt instead of cottage cheese, omitted the oil or green pepper, etc. It's still wonderful no matter what I do to it. Yum!

Funny that this is an Israeli dish. We had a dish very similar to this growing up in South Georgia (USA). It is great for Potlucks too.

Very yummy! i used feta cheese and added a few green olive and 1/2 of a tomato. Didn't use green pepper. It made a great b-fast/lunch combo. Warning: I ate all of it in 2 days with No help:) I guess it is one of the better thing to eat too much of.

This salad was excellent and very refreshing! I had it for lunch. I use a red pepper instead of a green pepper otherwise didn't change a thing! Thanks for a great recipe!

I like cottage cheese to start the day and am always looking for new ways to incorporate it into breakfast, so I DID actually eat this for breakfast. It's a very pleasant blend of flavors and will from hereon out have a place in my early morning rotation. I may sometimes add slivered almonds for nutritional reasons.
