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!

Sandi, that sounds wonderful. Will have to try that, thanks.

Thanks, Pat. I still enjoy this and it reminds me of my Mama. ;)

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..........
