 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      c             raw spinach -- finely chopped
    1                    thinly sliced peeled cucumber
    4                    green onions -- chopped
      1/2  c             sliced radishes
    2      c             cottage cheese
    1      c             sour cream
    2      tsp           fresh or bottled lemon juice
      1/2  tsp           salt
      1/4  tsp           freshly ground pepper
                         Paprika -- to taste
      1/2  c             minced fresh parsley
 
 I like to wash the spinach the day before, then wrap it in a cloth and
 refrigerate it overnight.
 
 Chop the spinach, add the cucumber, onions and radishes, then toss lightly.
 Arrange in a wooden salad bowl and place a mound of cottage cheese in the
 middle. Blend the sour cream with the lemon juice, salt and pepper and pour
 over the salad. 
 
 Sprinkle the paprika in the middle and the parsly all around. Toss when
 ready to serve.

 NOTES : This is a very good meal in itself, but it’s even better when
 served with thin slices of lightly buttered black bread.
