MaMaw's Pineapple-Cottage Cheese Salad

cathy tate


The first time I ever ate this was at my husband's mamaw's house. I am a little weird sometimes when it comes to somethings that goes into my mouth, if it doesn't look good or right, I won't even try it! Well this doesn't look good-but I didn't want to offend her and we were the only two people there--so I sucked it up and decided I would eat only 1 bite. I loved it!! This is so good and refreshing and is still the only thing that doesn't look good that I will eat!! It is family tested and highly approved!!
