Mom always made a version of this when we were kids. If I remember right she used lime jello and mandarin oranges. There are I am sure hundreds of versions out there. The measurements vary from recipe to recipe and the combinations of jello flavors and fruit are endless. Today I went with lime and pineapple, at work we call a similar combination pink parfait and use red jello instead. Pick your favorite color to compliment your picnic!
Jello Fluff Salad
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 cup cool whip
- 1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits ~ 8 o.z. or larger
- 1 package lime jello ~ I used a 6 o.z. package most recipes call for the smaller 3 o.z. the more you use the fuller the flavor and brighter the color which may or may not be a good thing!
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
Mix together all ingredients and chill before serving. I like to mix the cottage cheese and jello package together first; I don’t know if it really makes a difference but it incorporates well this way. Like I mentioned before try different flavors of jello and your favorite fruit.
