This was another of my favorite noon hour fares in my working days.
Most Family Style Restaurants have it on their menu. Specially in Summer. Many list it as cold Plate or Tuna or Chicken Salad Cold Plate. Normally served with Crackers and/or Dinner Rolls
It's Light. It's Healthy. And, So Pleasing to the Palate.
I put as much Celery and Onion in my Tuna Salad as I do Tuna. I prefer Hellmman's mayo over Miracle Whip, But let you preference dictate. I have recently enjoyed adding a little dice Jalapeno for a Bit of a Bite.
If I had, had a Tomato, a slice or wedge or two would have been on the plate.
Great as a sandwich or as cracker fare.
As for the Cottage Cheese, I top it with Diced Onions and a bit of Salt and hide it with Black Pepper. The more the More Better. (I know "More Better" is Dumb and Hackneyed.) But That's Me. Yummy.
