Tropical Salad

August 22, 2017

I grew up with a tub of small curd cottage cheese in my refrigerator.  In high school, I was the only one who would pass up the Corn Nuts as a snack and head straight to the so-called salad bar… a utility cart carrying bins filled with strawberry Jell-o squares, fruit cocktail, iceberg lettuce and cottage cheese.  A stocked cart by high school salad standards.  I made the best of it with my concoction of cottage cheese combined with pineapple chunks scooped out of the fruit cocktail bin.  My tropical salad.  I loved the combination of sweet and salty flavors and didn’t care for the weird looks coming from my friends.
