RECIPE FROM "SANDY'S
Grandma Muz's Best Jello Salad
This was my mother-in-law's recipe and it was always delicious. It probably had a "proper" name, but her recipe included only the ingredients.
1 package lime jello
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained and reserved
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges
1 cup cottage cheese, drained of excess milk
1 cup dream whip
4 ounces of softened cream cheese
Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup. In a saucepan, dissolve jello in the pineapple/water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and beat in softened cream cheese.
Blend in other ingredients, except dream whip, one at a time. Whisk in the dream whip last. Pour into bowl and refrigerate until time to serve.
