1 cup boiling water
1 pkg. lime Jell-O
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 small tub (8oz.) of Cool Whip
How I make it:
Empty the Jell-O package into a medium saucepan. Pour 1 cup of boiling water over Jell-O and stir until dissolved. Wait a minute or so then add the marshmallows. They will dissolve some. The original recipe dissolves the marshmallows completely, but I like to see the marshmallows in there. :)
Pour into a 9x13 glass dish.
Let cool for 10-15 minutes.
Add cottage cheese, pineapple, and Cool Whip. Mix well.
(You don’t have to use a whole tub of Cool Whip. The more you use, of course, the fluffier your salad will be.)
Refrigerate until jelled.
This is also good with chopped pecans mixed in, and/or sprinkled on top.
I used lime Jell-O this time because it’s green, but it’s good with other flavors too.
This is the usual way to serve it, but I made this one with only 1 cup of Cool Whip so I could use the rest of the Cool Whip to serve it…
this way. I scraped it out of the dish (after it jelled) into a bowl, broke it up, and stirred in the rest of the Cool Whip.
I made this for my daughter to take to school tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day.
It’s an old recipe, but it is so good and easy to make.
Hope you’re all having a good day. :)
