A question about a recipe: Jamie Oliver's Smoked Beets

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Jamie Oliver's Smoked Beets" from Genius Recipes. It says:

"Put the cottage cheese into a bowl and add the juice and finely grated zest from half your lemon. Stir in 2 glugs of extra virgin olive oil, the thyme leaves and some salt and pepper and gently fold it all together, so the oil and lemon marble through the cottage cheese. Taste the dressing and squeeze in a bit more lemon juice if you like. " Does the type of cottage cheese matter?

Nancy's Cottage Cheese is the favorite in my house. It is cultured, so has a little zing that should be good with this recipe. I'll be trying it.

I think quality does make a difference here, so if you have a favorite brand, go with that. I used Organic Valley whole milk cottage cheese and it was delicious.
