Dieter's Tartine
Cuisine: French
  • 1 large slice country bread, about ⅓-inch thick
  • ½ cup nonfat fromage blanc or nonfat cottage cheese thinned with nonfat sour cream (about 6 Tablespoons cottage cheese to 2 Tablespoons sour cream)
  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ seedless cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 small tomato, preferably peeled and seeded, diced
  • Chopped fresh chives or favorite herb
  1. Lightly grill one side of the bread or toast it on one side in a toaster oven. Place the bread toasted side up on a large plate; spread with the fromage blanc, then season with salt and pepper.
