This is a tasty, healthy and versatile salad.  I've used it in everything: pizza, wraps, stuffed into pita pockets with thinly sliced chicken, as an omelet filling with or without cheese, or just brown bagging it for a light lunch. If the weather is really warm, just leave out the cottage cheese so you don't worry about it spoiling.
