Warm Spinach and Kale Salad

A warm salad made with spinach and kale sautéed in olive oil along with minced garlic and small chopped shallots, seasoned with fresh cracked pepper. Cut up half a fresh medium apple and toss it all together with 1/3 of a cup low fat cottage cheese. The warm sautéed greens melts the cheese just enough to bring the dish together. A squeeze of lemon seals the deal and you have a delicious side to a meal or snack to enjoy! This recipe makes 1 serving.

- 1/3 c. low fat cottage cheese
