Cottage Cheese Spinach Salad (lower-fat version)

I was looking for a simple cottage cheese and spinach salad recipe and ran across this on the Recipezaar website. In the original version, I'm assuming regular cottage cheese and certainly regular sugar were called for in the recipe, so I switched them to low-fat cottage cheese and Splenda sweetener. Oh yeah, and whereas the original recipe called for ground mustard - and knowing I didn't have any - I just used a slightly smaller amount of regular yellow mustard in its place, and that seemed to work just as well.

Also in the original recipe, was for a whole 10-oz. package of spinach and 12-oz. carton of cottage cheese, for a total of 10 servings, but I scaled it down to just one since #1, I just wanted to first try the recipe and #2, I didn't plan on keeping a whole lot of it for another time, nor was I serving it to houseguests - just lil' ol' me!

But feel free to make the larger version if any of the above in fact does apply to you. And for general reference, here is the link to the original and larger version:
