Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Salad #4

on October 12, 2015

The recipe for today is named Salad #4. There are several of these recipes (with the name of Salad) in Grandma’s file, so I have to rename them by adding a number! This is another one to be categorized as “Retro Oddities”. There is something about adding cottage cheese to Jello . . . I just don’t know where that came from. My son said, “well, it IS fruit and cheese – dessert, maybe?”. It’s just weird. This seems so strange, but in the spirit of the blog – we’re making EVERY recipe. You just never know how they’ll turn out.

Salad #2

Ok – here goes.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Salad #4

Bring to a boil:

1 can fruit cocktail

Add:

1 small package of Jello (I used orange here, but she says that you can also use pineapple)

Bring to a boil again.

Cool some (I waited 15 minutes or so).

Mix in:

1 small cottage cheese

1 medium Cool Whip

Put mixture into a pretty bowl and chill.

I can honestly say that I’ve never boiled fruit cocktail before.

Cool the fruit cocktail/jello mixture and then just mix in the cottage cheese and Cool Whip.

The salad before and after chilling. It’s a subtle difference, but it is there.

It does firm up pretty quickly, and looks pretty!

We really are going with a theme with Grandmas recipes. Easy, quick, and then easy again. This one is SO easy, and it really is good, odd or not. Really.
