    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!
