Potluck Portion -- Cottage Cheese Summer Breeze Salad

"My daughter-in-law from my Husband's side gave me this recipe and I have used it with MUCH success at several "bring a side dish" parties. Everyone Always asks for the recipe, so I thought I would share it here as well. Simple and Scrumptious ! The following recipe is enough for a party, but you can always scale it down for your family."

    Super Easy and Super Good.. Not a big fan of reg. cottage cheese but this was YUMMY.. I used 1 yellow and 1 red bell pepper (not to big on green) and the roma tomatoes.. Make sure to pay attention when buying the ranch DIP mix, I almost bought the ranch dressing.. :) Keeper 4 Sure!!

    This recipe was SO refreshing on a 102 degree summer day -- my husband and I really enjoyed it. I served it the next day during a cookout at our house, and many people expressed how good this salad is. Next time I will try adding a little green onion as well. Thanks for sharing!

    So easy and so delish. I down sized since it was just for dh and I. Made for PAC 2011. Will certainly make again.

    This is such a delicious salad. I made the potluck size salad but stopped at 2 32 ounce containers of cottage cheese. I thought that was plenty and I didn't want the vegetables drowned out. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Scaled it down and make as recipe stated. Very good. My DH loved it also. Thanks for sharing such a quick, tasty salad!!


Wow, what a year and it's only May! We moved to Tucson from Missouri in late March and We Love it! Madly Huge differnce from the Show-me State. It REALLY is a Dry Heat! My husband grew up in the desert in California and has been wanting to wander this way since we met, and when the opportunitycame our way, we set off. I am always on the lookout for new-to-me old cookbooks. I love to read the cookbooks to get ideas and inspiration. I particularly enjoy the ones that read like books. For the amount of cooks books I own it is surprizing just how little I ever follow a recipe. I am always and forever reinventing recipes and making them suit our tastes. We have tried a few restaurants in Tucson and look forward to the vast diversity that the city offers.. We have found the perfect little taco stand that serves wonderful tacos and many other items we want to try!
