March Hare Salad

It's Spring Break, and so far I haven't done as much work as I intended, but I've done a lot of cooking! On this last day of March, I want to share my favorite new recipe. I've always been intrigued by March Hare Salad in the Moosewood Cookbook, and finally tried it a couple of weeks ago. I've made it twice more since then. I like it on crackers. Mollie Katzen recommends it as a vegetarian sandwich filling. I didn't plan on blogging this, but after I prepped all the veggies, they were just too pretty not to make a picture.

Here's the original recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook.

3 cups Cottage cheese
2 tablespoons Sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 cup Sunflower seeds, lightly toasted
1 medium Carrot diced
1 medium Tomato diced
1 scallion Minced
1 small Red bell pepper minced
1 stalk Celery diced
1 small Cucumber peeled, seeded, diced
1/2 cup Parsley minced
1 handful Alfalfa sprouts
2-3 tablespoons Lemon juice to taste
Salt and Black pepper to taste

Combine and chill. Makes 6-8 servings. Enjoy!

Little did I know you were going to become a food blogger...

The big pile of veggies makes this look pretty enticing, I'll have to try it.
