Cottage Cheese with Cucumber and Tomatoes

A Crunchy and Creamy Combination

This combination of cottage cheese, crunchy vegetables and the acid from cherry tomatoes was a childhood favorite. It still is one of my go-to lunches as it's quick to make, nutritious and it travels and stays well as a take-to-work carried lunch. While it can be made with no fat cottage cheese, the extra flavor that come from 2% or other low fat cottage cheese seems worth the extra calories.

If using a Common American or Kirby cucumber, the kinds that are always easiest to find in our produce markets, peel and seed the cucumber first. If using a hothouse or other thin-skinned cucumber, just rinse and trim off the ends; there's no need to peel them.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small bowl or lunch container, place the cottage cheese.
  2. Add the chunks of cut vegetables and stir gently to combine.
  3. Add grinds of black pepper to taste. No salt is needed because the cottage cheese usually is salty enough.
