Cottage Cheese Fruit Salad

Lisa Frye


Some members of my family aren't big cottage cheese eaters but I happen to love it. I know this is a common recipe, but given I can get my family to eat it, and my daughters to waste no time to emptying the bowl, I thought I would post it. My Mama made this back when I was in high school and we just always loved it.
