Cucumber and Cottage Cheese

Cucumber and Cottage Cheese

Introduction

I had something similar at a local restaurant as a side dish and decided it'd taste good in a pita pocket so I created this recipe. Makes a great lunch or quick snack. I normally eat it in a pita pocket, but did not include that in the calories here since pitas can vary in number of calories.
