Brought this to a 4th of July celebration, and I got rave reviews. It's super easy to make, and I thought it was quite tasty. Also, a nice cool, summer treat. I used Ken's red vinegar and oil salad dressing instead of Newman's Own---also saved some fat and calories. I used kosher salt instead of table salt. Definitely will make again.

This is OK but I never use prepared dressing, especially Newmans. Olive oil & rice wine vinegar gives a better taste & sea salt works better than table salt

Similar to my favourite Tomato-Cucumber salad: tomatoes (halved then cut into wedges), cucumbers (peel scored, sliced), cottage cheese (low-fat), Green Goddess or Peppercorn Ranch dressing Combine gently, serve chilled for added refreshment and CRUNCH!
