This recipe was my grandmothers and she made it for every family gathering we had. I've been making it for the 55 years I've been married and now our girl make it for their families.

Note: you may substitute shredded cheddar in place of the cottage cheese.

This recipe also works well using sugar free jello and reduced or fat free cottage cheese and salad dressing.
