This sounds like a great idea for tuna salad! I really like tuna salad but didn't know what to mix instead of mayo.I like cottage cheese and when I was younger, used to eat it on wheat crackers with pepper on top as a snack.

I will be trying this for sure.

Altho cottage cheese does have quite a bit of sodium I am going to try this as it sounds very tastie. I am also going to have this over lettuce llike a salad or filled in lettuce wraps. Thank you
