Cottage Cheese Confetti Salad

When I was growing up, this light but satisfying salad often took center stage as our supper during summer. My mother served it with a platter of smoked fish and good country-style rye bread with unsalted butter. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

    The 2 parts cottage cheese to 1 part sour cream made the flavor weird to me. If I make again, I'll completely leave out the sour cream; my taste buds won't let me evaluate beyond that.
