Kathie's StoryI don't know where Grandma got this recipe. It, and many like it, were popular back in the 1950's and 60's. It may have originated with the Jello Company.
Every church supper and family gathering had a similar dish and everyone had their variations. This was one of my Grandma's favorites.
(6 ounces) lime jello
(11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
(20 ounces) crushed pineapple well drained or fruit cocktail, drained
small curd cottage cheese
container cool whip
1Combine the dry lime jello, mandarin oranges, and pineapple or fruit cocktail in a bowl.
Set the bowl in the refrigerator to set for about 2 hours. Remove the bowl from the fridge and stir in the cottage cheese and Cool Whip, stirring until well blended.
2Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator until serving.
