My daughter has this habit of walking in to through the door from school and the first declaration she makes is “I’m starving, what can I eat” and I am usually figuring out what to make/suggest to her in anticipation of that question, everyday, which is also healthy!!… you know how you can sometimes run out of ideas and you just open the fridge and voila something strikes you – Hey let’s try these together –
So out came the cukes – had my son peel and slice them while I got to season the cottage cheese and in less than 5 minutes, we had a, if I may say so myself, “deliciously” wholesome and healthy snack which was devoured in literally 2 minutes by my hungry teenagers (not before I took pictures, though J– Can there be anything more satisfying than that? And I think this is a pretty decent dish to serve as an appetizer or snack at a party!
Well here it is in less than 5 minutes
2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 cup of cottage cheese
2 tsp of Melange de France herbs (you can use other herbs as well)
½ tsp of herb de Provence
Get a decorative plate and place the cucumbers in a domino circle around the edge.
Mix the herbs into the cottage cheese in a bowl and then scoop a few tablespoons into the center of the plate
Add some freshly ground pepper and a dash of salt (optional) over the cucumber
For purely decorative and picture purposes, I cut the head of a red bell pepper and placed it in the centre.
Serve this easy breezy, absolutely healthy treat anytime, with no stress
