    I made this the other day, and there is something about the consistency and blend of tastes that isn't quite right. I did make it to eat on its own, not in a sandwich. I might try it again in a sandwich or wrap to see if it's better that way. - 11/19/08

    Did u use 1% cottage cheese? If you use fat free the texture will not be good like egg salad.

    I really enjoyed this filling delight! Being a big fan of egg salad I was a bit wary, but wow! I didn't miss the mayo at all and even used non-fat cottage cheese. Adding a pinch of dill gives it a pickle-ish zip. How cool that you can season this however you want-without caloric penalty!! - 5/10/10
