Marinated tomatoes with cottage cheese is the perfect afternoon snack. This savory treat is full of flavor, but so easy to make!

I know what you’re thinking, why would I ever put tomatoes with cottage cheese? Well think about it tomatoes and mozzarella? Best friends! Tomatoes and goat cheese? Soul mates! Tomatoes and blue cheese? A sophisticated pair! So why wouldn’t you and them with the creamy, salty, protein filled goodness that is cottage cheese?

That being said I cannot take any of the credit for deciding to pair the two. I currently work for the most generous, kindhearted woman in the whole world Jeanne Taylor and this is one of her favorite snacks. Many mornings I come into work to find her making a lunch of cottage cheese, tomatoes, and red onion. I decided to marinate my tomatoes overnight that way they are juicy and delicious! 

One of my favorite things about this summer has been getting to see the produce come out of our beautiful garden. Right now we’ve got so many tomatoes coming in the bucket full everyday. While these tomatoes are sweet as candy on their own marinating them in fresh herbs, garlic, and shallots makes the perfect breakfast or lunch! 

Cottage cheese is a great way to fill up with some protein for lunch. Just four ounces of full fat cottage cheese has 12 grams of protein. While you can find lower fat cottage cheese they often add sugar to those to compensate for the lack of fat. I say keep the fat ditch the sugar, but hey you’re an adult do what you want!
