This cottage cheese salad with new Danish cherry tomatoes and fresh oregano is a real summer salad for the warm nights in the garden or on the balcony in my case! I just love that I’m able to go out on my balcony and grab some fresh oregano from my little mini balcony herb garden. Seriously, nothing beats that. Or maybe when the tomatoes out there have turned red and juicy, maybe that beats it! Big time…
Cottage cheese salad with the best tomatoes (or maybe 2nd best!?!)
For my salad I’ve used the best Danish Organic tomatoes from a little farm shop outside of Copenhagen. And they are literally amazing! Maybe mine out on the balcony will taste just as good, lets hope so because I’ve given them LOOOTS of love, but until then I’m perfectly fine with these red beauties.
What to eat with the salad?
This cottage cheese salad will work totally fine on it’s own as a lunch salad or maybe even breakfast salad, because why not? However, imagine serving this salad with a piece of grilled chicken or maybe even fish, that would be pretty awesome, right?!
