Orange Jello Salad
Why do I love this jello salad so much? I guess because I just tracked down the recipe, so I've never had it very much. I know it's an old standby. I would never think to mix these ingredients together, but it's just so good.
1 container Cool Whip, 8 oz. (I used Cool Whip Light)
1 container small curd cottage cheese, 16 oz.
1 small box orange jello (I used sugar free)
1 large can crushed pineapple, (20 oz.) well drained
1-2 can mandarin oranges, well drained (to taste)
Gently combine cool whip, cottage cheese, drained pineapple, and dry jello powder in a large bowl. Gently stir in mandarin oranges, reserving some for garnishing if desired.
Garnish with mandarin oranges. Chill well before serving.
