We've probably all heard of cottage cheese with pineapple, though I can't imagine whose idea that was! Or maybe you like cottage cheese with sweet or fruit mixed in.

Recently a friend served cottage cheese with marinated then diced tomatoes and green onions stirred in. I was skeptical, but it was good. Also like that it was savory and not sweet.

As a kid, we just have cottage cheese and a salt shaker. What do you mix into your cottage cheese or serve alongside?

Cottage cheese w/tomatoes is one of my favorite things to eat. I love to drizzle the tomatoes with just a bit of green goddess dressing.

I don't like cottage cheese - I use instead farmers cheese and make "spring dip":
diced fresh tomatoes, diced radishes, diced peeled cucumber ( the one without seeds), diced green onions, a pinch of finely chopped dill. Salt and white pepper.
I wonder if you can do a tasty dip/bread spread ( yummy on a fresh baguette) from a cottage cheese.

Split baked potato with margarine, s&p, topped with cottage cheese (full fat version, none of the namby pamby "light" stuff) and Bacos. Meal fit for a king.

Salad from my childhood ~ iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cut up canned asparagus, s&p, cottage cheese, topped with sweet onion and poppy seed dressing (used to be Henri's Tas-Tee, hard to find now). Ken's Foods makes a suitable replacement Ken's Steak House | Sweet Vidalia Onion (http://www.kensfoods.com/kf/products/productView.servlet?consumerProductId=41&productCa tegoryId=&productFlavorId=14 - broken link)

And finally, cottage cheese and Triscuits cannot exist simultaneously in my home. They are like matter and anti-matter. If they come into contact with one another they are both annihilated and disappear, apparently through some sort of dipping process

Showing my age here, but I love cottage cheese with pineapple. My latest favorite food though is Fage yogurt with Polaner sugarfree strawberry jam mixed in.

I like it almost any way...grew up eating it with salt and pepper. I also like pineapple, and peaches are good in it too. I also love it with homegrown tomatoes!

I prefer to keep the fruit in my yogurt and eat my cottage cheese savory. I think the OP's friend's cottage cheese sounded really yummy. Usually I just season it with pepper and/or paprika, but I even like it plain.

I prefer the larger curd size as the small curds have a grainier texture that I find less appealing. I really like the individual serving packages because then each serving is fresh, and the portion sizes are perfect for the amount of cottage cheese I can stomach at one time. When you buy a big container, as soon as you break the seal it starts absorbing flavors from the fridge, so a few servings into it, it can start to be less than pleasant (I notice this especially with cottage cheese at restaurants, blech).

Canned tuna or salmon, some onion, salt and pepper, and then use it as a dip with celery, green pepper, carrots, etc.

I don't mind pineapple in cottage cheese, but the store-bought varieties are usually too sweet.

It also makes a good salad dressing, with a splash of red wine or tarragon vinegar.

For a chip dip, whirl equal parts cottage cheese and yogurt in a food processor, and mix in green onion, garlic, lemon juice, pepper and whatever herbs you wish.
