Cottage Cheese Salad




Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    Cottage cheese – approx 1/2c
    Thick slice of fresh pineapple - chopped (canned is OK but fresh tastes best!)
    Cherry tomatoes – 7 will count as 1 of your 5 a day
    Small portion of chopped red onion
    Handful of salad leaves – I like to use rocket leaves
    .5 ripe avocado

Directions

Put the cottage cheese in a small pot and top with the pineapple. Cover with a lid or cling film and put into your lunchbox. (I use a ramekin dish which will then fit inside my lunchbox container). Keeping the cheese separate will stop it from “leaking” into the rest of the salad and making everything else soggy.
Place the whole cherry tomatoes, onion and salad leaves in your box. Take along an unpeeled avocado.
When ready to eat, just peel and chop the avocado and mix with the tomatoes, onion and salad leaves.
The moisture from the cheese and pineapple means you really do not need to add any dressing to this.
I like this with a couple of rye crackers or mini wholemeal pita bread.
-----
(alt. for TMJ), you can leave out the lettuce or chop it VERY fine if you think you can chew that. Otherwise this is still good without it - just less crunchy.
