I bought a food processor to make healthy chopped salads and my first one was a disaster. I put in greens, tomatoes, lettuce, bell peppers, sunflower seeds and fat free cottage cheese and ended up with an unappetizing sludge. Almost like something you'd find under the sink! It's my first time using one of these things so i'm sure i messed up something simple. I pulsed it for maybe 20 seconds tops starting and stopping and checking progress.
My guess is that maybe i shouldn't have put the cottage cheese in. Maybe i should have mixed that in by hand afterwards.
Any ideas? Also, is there special order to putting in the veggies when making chopped salad?
