Introduction

Gone are the days when “creamy” in a recipe means adding mayonnaise or heavy cream (and fat!). This light recipe uses Lowfat Muuna cottage cheese to give it its creaminess. Use it as a side dish or eat it as a main dish salad since the cottage is packed with protein!

Ingredients

• 1 lb. Fresh green beans
• 1.5 cups Lowfat Plain 2% Muuna cottage cheese
• 1 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
• 1 Tsp. Apple cider vinegar
• 1⁄2 Red onion, thinly sliced
• Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Blanch green beans by placing them in boiling water for 3 minutes.

2. Drain the green beans and add them into a bowl of ice water to set color and cool.

3. While the green beans cool in the ice bath, mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

4. Drain the green beans, add them into the cottage cheese mixture, and stir until combined.
