Posted on Thursday, March 21st, 2013

Spring is here and this light and healthy recipe is right in line with warmer weather and celebrating National Nutrition Month this March. It features cottage cheese which is an excellent source of protein, with 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese providing 14 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat, 10 mg cholesterol, 4 grams of carbs and only 90 calories. It is a heart-healthy treat and also provides calcium and potassium.

Ingredients:

6 oz baby spinach
1/4 cup sliced green onions (scallions)
1/2 cup light raspberry  fat-free vinaigrette
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) chopped walnuts
2 cups fat free or low fat cottage cheese

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directions:

Toss the spinach and green onions with the vinaigrette; divide evenly onto 4 salad plates.   Top each salad with the strawberries and walnuts.  Spoon the cottage cheese over the spinach mixture and serve.
