Reviews for Pear Cottage Cheese Salad
"I modified this salad by eliminating the ginger and celery. I added a pinch of brown sugar and cinnamon instead. You could also use toasted sweetened pecans instead of the brown sugar/cinnamon combo."
"I thought this would be a wonderful combination but to my dismay I didn't care for it at all. My husband tried it but wouldn't eat it and he loves cottage cheese."
"I was a bit nervous about the combination but was pleasantly surprised! I liked that the ginger gave it almost a sweet flavor that complimented the pear. Yummy and perfect for lunches!"
