Polish Spring Cottage Cheese

First vegetables available in spring- horseradish and spring onions are the basis of my favorite Polish spring cottage cheese. I use both horseradish balls and sprouts. Sprouts are rich in minerals and can be easily grown at home.

In Poland we use dry write cheese – Twaróg. It is easy available in each grocery store in Poland. My Grandma was sometimes making curd herself, using fresh milk from her neighbour, who has cows.

Try also Paprykarz, smoked fish bread spread, very popular in PRL.


  • 350 g/ 0,7 lb dry white cheese (curd)
  • 1 cup thick yogurt ( I use Greek style yogurt)
  • spring onions
  • horseradish
  • horseradish sprouts
  • half cucumber
  • parsley
  • salt, freshly grounded black pepper

Mash curd with a fork, add yogurt and mix.

Add chopped vegetables. Season with salt and freshly grounded black pepper.

Serve Polish spring cottage cheese with fresh bread. Yummy:)
