Place the lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Core and julienne the apple into matchsticks. Put them into the bowl and toss with lemon juice.
Peel and cut the carrot into matchsticks, and combine with the apple in the bowl.
Then make a dressing. Combine yoghurt, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper (and herbs/spices if you use) in a small bowl.
Mix all ingredients in step 2 and 3 together. Use a big enough bowl to combine well. Sprinkle cottage cheese, walnuts and cranberries on top.
Refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve chilled.
