Since I started cutting out wheat and eating fewer carbs to lose weight, I had to come up with some new lunches and side dishes. Two of my favorites now that the weather is starting to warm up are cucumbers and cottage cheese. You may not thing of those two ingredients together, but they make the most delicious cucumber cottage cheese salad. For the moment I’m still relying on store-bought cucumbers, but the plants in my garden are starting to grow well and it won’t be long before the cucumber harvest starts.
- 1 large cucumber
- 16 oz container of cottage cheese
- 1 tsp dried dill or 2 tbsp fresh dill (chopped)
- garlic salt to taste
- black pepper to taste (optional)
