"Lola" gazagi (Tulip salad)
This salad surely will give great look for your table! Use elongated, small and hard tomatoes for tulips. Also different kinds of chopped green can be used with the filling, but I prefer it to be white:)
100 gr of cottage cheese
2-3 tbsp of plain yogurt or cream cheese
Salt to taste
1 clove of garlic
Green onions and corn for decoration
Cut out plus shape (+)on top of tomatoes. Carefully open up each side with sharp knife and scrub out all the flesh. Sprinkle with salt and put in ice cold water.
Grate or blend cottage cheese and mix with yogurt or cream cheese. Add in mashed garlic and salt. It must be thick enough.
Take out tomatoes and dry them with paper towel. Fill tomatoes with a cheese filling. Decorate with green onion and corn.
Serve and enjoy!
