MY HUSBAND suggested I share this salad recipe. It's one of his favorites, which I created long ago in a moment of panic. I'd opened the refrigerator to get out the makings for green salad and discovered I had only a couple lettuce leaves. The cottage cheese was a perfect substitute. -Pat Wasing, Houston, Texas
