Cauliflower – Cottage Cheese Salad
This is a salad my friend Kate brought recently to a potluck. At first I thought it an odd combination–cauliflower and cottage cheese. It certainly didn’t look spectacular since it was all white! But when I tried it I discovered that it is quite tasty. Not only that, but it is also healthy and provides a good dose of protein. So I set out to make it myself and added some peppers, snap peas and carrots to give it a little color and some added interest.
The end result–a tasty salad that makes a nice light meal. Thanks Kate for the great idea!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 head of cauliflower
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow or orange bell pepper
Handful of snap peas
Handful of grated carrot
1 24 oz. container fat-free or low-fat cottage cheese
