How to Make Orange Jello Salad


  1. Drain both cans of fruit, very well.
  2. Mix jello, cool whip and cottage cheese together so that it is not grainy.
  3. Then add everyting else. Refridgerate for 1 hour. Serve cold.
  4. I use sugarfree jello, light cool whip and light cottage cheese. I also get canned fruit in juice rather than heavy syrup. It is good either way.
