You usually think of cottage cheese in a salad--not a sandwich. But mixed with a few fresh herbs and seasonings, low-fat cottage cheese makes a great high-protein topping for rye toast. I like the distinct caraway flavor of the bread with the mild cottage cheese, and there’s something soothing about the warm toast and cool topping. Serve shredded carrots and alfalfa sprouts alongside.
For a quick snack, keep a batch of the cheese mixture in the fridge. Instead of toast, try it with celery or carrot sticks.
