Cottage Cheese Salad

I don’t know. Something about mayo just seems wrong with cottage cheese, so I am skipping it. Onions and olives certainly change up the cottage cheese in a fun new retro way. What do you think?

1 lb. cottage cheese
1 teaspoon grated onion or 1 tablespoon chopped stuffed olives
Crisp lettuce or endive
¼ cup mayonnaise

Combine cottage cheese with grated onion or olives. Cover and let stand in refrigerator at least 3o minutes to blend flavors. Heap lightly into lettuce cups on individual salad plates and serve with mayonnaise, if desired. 5 servings. Onion may be omitted, or chopped chives may be substituted. The Modern Family Cookbook


  1. My rule for veggies in jello also applies to cottage cheese.
