I love this and eat it all the time...I scale this down for myself - 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1 med. tomato, 1/2-1/3 cucumber, salt and pepper to taste - sometimes I add avocado.

Made this in the morning to eat for a healthy lunch and was disappointed by the lack of flavor. It needed something and I can figure out what. I love tomatoes, cucumbers and cottage cheese, but it need some zip.

MMMMMMM...this is WONDERFUL!!! It's light, refreshing, and can be adapted in an infinite number of ways. I like it as is, however (which is very unusual) and so if I could, I would give this simple, easy, why-didn't-I-think-of-this-before recipe 10 stars!!!

I really loved this as my lunch today. I did add garlic and onion powders and a good splash of lemon juice. Lots of black cracked pepper made it just perfect. A very refreshing salad for a hot and humid day. Thanks Randi!!

To avoid a sloppy and unpleasant consistency, I always deseed both the tomatoes and cucumber. I also use English cucumbers, and keep the skin on for a bit of extra crunch. Thanks!

Really good it has become one of our favorites. It's also very easy to make.

This is tough to rate because I just realized I'm not even sure if I've ever had/like cottage cheese. I made this as a simple dinner side and while we both ate it, I'm not sure it's something I'll make again. That being said, it IS a nice change of pace light (I used fat free cottage cheese) side. It's a pretty *naked* palate, open to adding whatever herbs/spices/seasoning you prefer to up the flavor a notch. THANKS for a nice change of pace side, Randi!
