A 5 minute cucumber sandwich? Say whaaa? My husband asked me what I was doing a couple days ago as I was making lunch and I said, “I am making us cucumber sandwiches.” He said, “umm, I don’t want one.” -ha. I said, “you just wait, I am adding cottage cheese with chive and you are going to love it!” We recently partnered with Hood® to whip up a super easy snack and these mini cucumber sandwiches with Hood Cottage Cheese with Chive are delicious and so simple to make.

Pretty Cute right? As many of you know, we are from Massachusetts and Hood is local to us. We love working with local brands! We have worked with Hood now going on two years and we were thrilled to be asked to be a part of their 2017 Ambassador program. I mean, we already use Hood® products and we are all fans of Cottage Cheese so it’s a win win. As a local New England company, for 170 years Hood® has been committed to making the highest quality dairy products that you can trust to perform best every day. I love telling my grandfather when we are working with Hood because my grandfather was a dairy farmer for many years and he thinks it’s amazing that we work with Hood. My gramps is so cute ;).
Hood Cottage Cheese is a great snack with a great source of protein. They offer 10 different flavors in various size options, including single-serve and multi-serve.
A few of their top flavors are:
Cucumber & Dill, Chive, Pineapple, Honey & Pear, Maple & Vanilla, Low Fat with Peaches, and Garden Vegetables.
We have an amazing Pineapple parfait recipe that we made last summer and it’s to die for!
and quiche muffin with veggies recipe
I used Hood Cottage Cheese in both of these recipes and they are not only delicious, they are quick and easy to make. Cottage cheese is a healthy snack that fills you up and tastes delicious. I am guilty of eating a couple of the single-serve containers a day. I dip my crackers in it, fruit, veggie sticks and have been known to spread it on my bagel as an alternative to cream cheese. Want to try one of these amazing flavors for yourself? Check out the Hood Store Locator to find a store near you.
It’s kind of cool when you get to work with a brand that is not only located 40 minutes from your house but a brand that I grew up with and still currently use. It’s funny how things come full circle sometime ;).
