Is it just me or does Jell-o seem kind of old school?? This was always my favorite dessert/side salad growing up. Maybe because it's pink and fluffy. It seems we'd often have it at Sunday dinners or family gatherings. During college I remember making it a few times for friends or roommates and it was always a hit.
Recipe from Mom Christensen
1 large box Jello (any flavor, but I prefer strawberry)
1 pint cottage cheese
9 oz. tub Cool Whip (or 1 pkg. prepared Dream Whip)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
Any other fruit of choice -- canned or fresh (bananas, grapes, peaches, fruit cocktail, strawberries)
