A childhood memory has been percolating in my brain for days. My mother giving me a bowl in the summer heat and pushing me out the back door to eat in the back yard to get me out from underfoot.

Cottage cheese and radishes together. When I was at the farmers market earlier this week, I snagged some radishes and grabbed some cottage cheese too. I was all set. —KitchenBeard

Very satisfying and refreshing. I’ve made this twice once with shallots and once with chives both good. Skipped the parsley. I didn’t chill it overnight, I put in in the fridge while I made a sandwich. But the leftovers went back into the fridge and were great the next day.

This is WAY too much salt.

I like your addition of celery seed. I make a similar thing and your idea makes it even better.Thanks.
