mmmmm...dry jello salad


okay, the name of this one might scare you off but it's really delicious and soooo easy to make. i love cool treats in the summer. i could pretty much live off of things out of the fridge and freezer. this recipe is perfect for a cool summer snack.

dry jello salad

1 small can crushed pineapple

1 can mandarine oranges, cut in half

1 large package orange jello

1 (8 oz.) package cool whip (you can use the low-fat variety if you like)

1 pt. cottage cheese



put the fruit in a strainer and let fruit drain for at least one hour. pour the fruit into a bowl and sprinkle dry jello over the fruit. mix well. add the cottage cheese and mix until smooth. lastly, add the cool whip and blend well. place in a large dish and refrigerate until ready to serve. enjoy!
