This recipe serves one and makes a great snack or lunch. My friend, Donna has made this salad a number of times and I always enjoy it. I asked her if I could add this dish to my recipes, and she was quite honored.
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 small apple, chopped
2 Tbs. mixed dried fruit or raisins
Pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg
1 lettuce leaf
In a small bowl stir together cottage cheese, apples, dried fruit bits, raisins, cinnamon
Serve immediately, or cover and chill in frig only up to 24 hours
To serve line a plate with lettuce, spoon cottage cheese mixture on lettuce leaf with some whole grain crackers
Donna serves this with celery sticks for that extra crunch that’s low in calories. Cottage cheese is an excellent food, high in protein and calcium and low in fat and cholesterol. It’s easily digestible and can be eaten with just about any fruit. It’s a great choice after a strenuous workout to restore your protein levels and give you that extra boost.
