Triple Berry Salad with Cottage Cheese

MissyChef says:


This recipe says it makes 4 servings which consist of 1/2c cottage cheese and 1/2c berries, but the ingredients total 4 cups of berries...which would make the portion size 1c. not 1/2c. What is the correct portion size? Moderator comment: You are correct--the portion has been corrected to 1 cup berry mixture instead of 1/2 cup. Thank you!
