Friday's Finds :: Cottage Cheese Salad

Have you discovered it's difficult to get your family to eat Cottage Cheese? How about yourself?

Here is a delicious way to implement that "good-for-you-side" of cottage cheese in to any one's diet. I must say I love mine best topped with apple butter, but unless your understandably Pennsylvania Dutch, you might be quick to turn up your nose over that one. But here is a quick, simple recipe that will please most everyone, because they'll never know!! (You may have to change the title). We won't mention any names, but as someone in this household said to me; "Some thing's are better left unsaid".
~ Cottage Cheese Salad~

3 oz. pkg. orange Jello
16 oz. cottage cheese (small curd, is the nicest to use)
2 cups sweetened whipped cream or Cool Whip
1 small can mandarin oranges, (or crushed pineapple) drained
1 cup miniature marshmallows, optional

Mix dry Jello with remaining ingredients. Chill and serve. This is good with other flavors of jello and fruit, too. I used black raspberry jello and mandarin oranges.

Serve it up pretty, and it's sure to go down good. Give it a try, once. You jest might be surprised!! Hey, I'm just trying to dutchify things around here, so bear with me. Would ya? ;)

: : Other then in lasagna (with replacing ricotta and instead of using cottage cheese); What are some other delicious ways to "hide" and implement cottage cheese into the diet?
