This salad is based on two items that I don't particularly care for individually, but taste wonderful when combined. Here are two versions, that is especially good for the warm months. It is quick, healthy, inexpensive, and there can be so many combinations with the choices of ingredients and spices. The recipe here is for one person, and can easily be increased for more people.

Total Time: 5-10 minutes

Yield: One serving

Source: Based on a recipe from Whole Foods for the Whole Family.


  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • fruits of your choice or vegetables of your choice
  • spices of your choice


  1. Mix the yogurt and cottage cheese until smooth. You will want to mash the lumps in the cottage cheese.
  2. Fold in the fruit or vegetables. I used berries and pineapple for the fruit salad, and carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes for the vegetable salad.
  3. Put in spices of your choice. I used cinnamon for the fruit salad and black pepper and dill for the vegetable salad.
  4. Ad

  5. Enjoy!

This was one that my mom made a lot when I was a kid. I like it because not only does it taste great, but it also travels well for picnics and potlucks.

  • 1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 (regular size) carton Cool Whip
