Cottage Apple Salad

Cottage Apple Salad is simple to make, delicious to eat. Also a perfect salad for busy days. This is one to keep in your memory for a quick salad to enjoy. Plus kids love this salad, it is that good...Cottage Apple Salad, yep, you will want to make this.

Cottage Apple Salad, apples, cottage cheese and cinnamon!

This salad of apples, cottage cheese, and a dusting of cinnamon borders on too simple to be an actual recipe. But on the other hand, it is too tasty to leave it a secret and not share. The creamy cottage cheese gently coats the crisp sweet apple pieces. Cinnamon is the perfect spice, it is zesty without being too strong or overpowering the salad. And don't we all need more ideas like this one for busy days, and let's be honest, life will always give us busy days...

If someone had told me that a scoop of cottage cheese, a diced apple, and a dusting of cinnamon would taste this good I would have called them on the accuracy of their taste buds! But here I am sharing it with you. Oh, and before I forget, be sure to scatter a few walnut pieces over the top...

Cottage Apple Salad is one of the recipes (if you will) that came about while volunteering in remote places and having only a very small grocery store available. Seriously, and without apologies, I have to say, it really is enjoyable and quite good!

When we make this at home we have enjoyed both walnuts and pecans. For this salad, we used a red apple, but any apple of your own preference is the one to use. Cottage Apple Salad is perfect as lunch for one, or as a side salad for two. Double or triple the recipe when you are fortunate enough to have more folks at your table!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • apple, red or green
  • cottage cheese
  • cinnamon
  • walnuts or pecans if desired
You will also need the following:
  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • serving bowl
