Scrub the potato, and prick several times with the tines of a fork.
Place on a microwave-safe plate and cook at full power for 5 minutes. A medium size potato should be done. If it's not, turn it over and cook for another 3-5 minutes. If it's still hard in the middle, cook in additional 1-minute increments until done.
When the potato is soft, remove from the microwave, and cut in half lengthwise.
Season with salt and pepper, and mash up the inside a little using a fork. Top with cottage cottage cheese and then salsa.
