When I was a child, I hated cottage cheese – so much so that I refused to eat my Mom’s pierogies, which were made with dry curd cottage cheese and mashed potatoes.

It was something about the looks of those soft white curds that put me off.

In early adulthood, when I tried it with fruit and lettuce I learned to love this milk product. At the same time, I learned to love my Mom’s pierogies.

Now, I enjoy a simple salad of mixed greens, fruit, and 1% mf cottage cheese at least twice a week. I also love cottage cheese scooped into a cantaloupe half.

The mild, slightly salty flavour of the cottage cheese is a perfect compliment to fruit – at least it is in my mind.

How about you? Do you like cottage cheese? If yes, was it an acquired taste or have you always liked it? If no, what is it that you don’t like about it? I’m looking forward to your responses.

Photography Note: All I did with the original photo was a crop.

“Cottage cheese, broken down into its simplest form, is milk that has been curdled to mimic the cellulite its consumption is meant to banish.”
