This stuff is very addictive, with a few minor modifications. First, I highly recommend that you puree the cottage cheese in the blender or a food processor. Second, drain the fruit very well. Third, only use one 8 oz. container of Cool Whip. And finally, refrigerate for several hours for it to set up properly. The result is smooth, rich, orange perfection :-) Read More

Interesting but the cottage cheese was a bit overpowering. Made for an pukey texture. Read More

This is a very refreshing recipe that I have made for years with some slight variations: Strawberry or Strawberry/Banana jello with drained pineapple tidbits or another very nice combination is using lime jello with the pineapple. The combinations are endless. I've even added chopped nuts and marshmallows. In all my combinations though I've always only needed 1 box of jello instead of 2. Read More

I've loved this salad for years! It's a refreshing snack and/or a great alternative to breakfast cereal. However, I only use one small package of sugar-free jello and I often eliminate the whipped topping altogether which cuts down the calories. Personally, I also prefer the consistency when made with large curd cottage cheese simply because it's more identifiable and doesn't get lost in the mixture. Makes about 12 half cup servings (without the whipped topping). Read More

I made this for a baby shower and it was a split reaction. People were asking what the chunks were and some cringed when I said cottage cheese. I admit I didn't drain the pineapple and I should have. I thought the taste was great but it was too runny. To stiffen it up I added coconut and it tasted even better. Next time I will drain the cottage cheese and the pineapple along with the oranges.

Good recipe. Only change we made was to cut the jello down to one box instead of two. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This is such a tasty and refreshing dessert. A nice change from regular fruit salads. I use fat free cottage cheese and apricot flavored gelatin when I can find it. My 4 year old enjoys this as well (and he's picky). Thanks for sharing. Read More
