"I added more sour cream instead of mayo. Green onion, cucumber, radish, and some black pepper. Yummy! I excluded the tomatoes because personally I don't like them. But it was delish!"

"This is really good. I used lowfat cottage cheese and light mayo and light sour cream. Added half a cucumber, an orange bell pepper and 1 cup grape tomatoes since that was what I had on hand. This would be wonderful with summer veggies. I will make this a lot in the summer when I am trying to find cool things to eat."

"This was fantastic! I am not a cottage cheese lover, but this was so good I intend to make it for lunch a few times a week. Very fresh tasting and the perfect mix of ingredients!"

"I do not like cottage cheese but was needing to eat it because of the protein content, so this recipe intrigued me. I use lowfat cottage cheese and no longer use the mayonnaise or the sour cream. I've tried it both ways and don't see a difference. Why add more calories if you don't need to? This is the only way I can eat cottage cheese. Thanks for the recipe!"
