    I've been making a version of this for years. I just mix in tomatoes (minus the seeds), and any crunchy veggies in the fridge. I can see the dressing working. If you aren't getting enough fat in your diet, that would be a way to get some in. I've never used it but might try it sometime. - 7/21/09

    CC is a great source of protein. However, it is acidic to the blood stream (the problem with mixing w/fruit - it turns to sugar!). Balance the acidity with alkalizing veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers,etc.) for a great breakfast! Energizing, you won't crash from the carbs... Add avo for the good fats! - 12/4/09

    I love cucumbers.....A great low calorie fill you up kind of snack or with you meal. I sometimes only season them with greek seasoning and a touch of splenda. Sometimes I use low fat yogurt as the dressing with onions as well. Versatile in so many ways. - 7/20/09

    This sounds like a nice change of pace. I never eat peppers --they make my mouth break out -- but the idea of crunch veggies is nice.
    I usually add either crushed pineapple or sliced canned peaches to my cottage cheese. - 7/20/09
