Cottage Cheese Veggie Salad If you like cottage cheese, here is a simple recipe to celebrate this protein-filled food. When I was growing up, my mom frequently made this using radishes, cucumbers and tomatoes, but I also add whatever vegetables I have on hand, as well as crab (or imitation crab) occasionally for an especially satisfying meal. The radishes are key, so don't skip them! I recommend Daisy cottage cheese since it doesn't have added fillers like most other brands, and it's a bit lower in sodium, as well as gluten free. Cottage cheese packs a high concentration of protein - 28g per cup - to help you feel full longer. The leftovers make a great lunch the next day.
