Fat-free Feta Cheese - Recipe


I like spiced feta on tomatoes and in salads.  Usually make this up as a
fatfree substitute.  I am going to try it in Karen Greenlees Stuffed
tomato recipe.  You can leave out the garlic and basil if the recipe you
are using calls for other spices.

Fat-free spiced Feta - Barb Beck

1 C very low fat cottage cheese
4 T vinegar
1 clove garlic pressed
finely chopped fresh basil
salt (optional)

Mix all ingredients and let sit for a few hours or overnight. Put in a
strainer lined with a coffee filter and press out a lot of the juice. (If
in a hurry omit last two ingredients add more vinegar and drain after only
a few minutes then stir in last three ingredients.)  Salt to taste.

You may need to adjust the amount of vinegar to more closely resemble the
feta you are used to.
