  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 4 cups thinly sliced onion, separated into rings
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 pounds small Yukon gold potatoes
  • 3 ounces feta cheese
  • 3 ounces 2% reduced-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 12 curly leaf lettuce leaves
  • 2 hard-cooked large eggs, each cut into 6 wedges


Combine onion and juice in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove onion from bag, reserving marinade.

Place potatoes in a saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool. Peel and cut potatoes in half.

Place reserved marinade, cheeses, hot sauce, and milk in a blender; process until smooth.

Arrange 2 lettuce leaves on each of 6 salad plates. Top each serving with 2/3 cup onion, 3/4 cup potatoes, 2 tablespoons cheese sauce, and 2 egg wedges.
