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!


  1. Hi! Found your blog on pregnant bloggers site.

    This actually looks like it may be good....I think i'm gonna try it, hehe.

    You think one can use cream instead of cool whip?

    1. i think you could probably use real whipping cream...yummmmm...that sounds fantastic!
