This fresh-tasting salad combines luscious, sweet peaches and crisp green vegetables with a generous portion of creamy cottage cheese.
*Top this salad with nectarines or fresh apricots in place of the peaches.
*Use ricotta instead of cottage cheese.
*Serve with warmed sunflower seed, walnut or pumpkin bread for a well-balanced and delicious lunch.
*To toast flaked almonds, spread them in a single layer under a grill or in a dry frying pan. Cook the almonds for a few minutes until they are fragrant and browned.
*Cottage cheese is a great source of B vitamins.
*Fresh peaches are a good source of vitamin C and provide some betacarotene.
