American Flag Salad or Dessert
This refreshing Independence Day salad is made from strawberries, blueberries, cottage cheese, and Neufchatel (to make the stars using a pastry tip). Prepare in a rectangular serving pan or plate. To turn the salad into a healthy dessert, substitute low fat vanilla ice cream for the cottage cheese.
