Cottage Cheese with Tomatoes, Cucumber, and Basil

Ingredients: (makes 4 snack sized servings)

- 1 1/3 c. cottage cheese

- 1/2 large English cucumber, chopped

- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped

- 1 T. balsamic vinegar

- 1 T. fresh chopped basil (I used the refrigerated tube kind)

- salt/pepper to taste

- about a cup of baby spinach (packed)


1.  In a medium bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, cucumber, basil, and vinegar.  Stir gently to combine, then add salt and pepper to taste.  Store in fridge until ready to use if making this up ahead of time.

2.  When ready to eat, layer 1/3 c. cottage cheese, 1/4 of the tomato mixture, and a small handful of the baby spinach.
