    Have you ever made this with cream cheese instead of cottage cheese? It's fantastic.......just add a softened cake (8 oz.) of cream cheese to the jello while it's still hot from the boiling water....mash it with a fork, to break it up. Then add the cold water and remailing ingrediants. It make's the salad even creamier. Try it, and let me know what you think!

    OMG, I havn't seen this recipe in over 30 years! My Aunt use to make it every Sunday during Lent, because she always gave up sweets, but she never considered this a sweet (ha ha). It always was delish!!! Thanks for sharing and the memories..........
