Cottage Cheese and Pecan Salad

Karla Johnson of East Helena, Montana dresses up cottage cheese with pecans and onions to make this savory side dish. “This would be good with chopped apples and walnuts, similar to a Waldorf salad,” she adds. TIP: It’s a nice way to round out a sandwich lunch…or serve it with assorted sliced fruit for a lighter option.

    I really did not care for this. The garlic/onion flavor was way too overpowering for the mild cottage cheese.
