If you like the combination of pineapple and cottage cheese, you'll like this simple & tasty gelatin salad. It's delicious as is, or to dress it up, scoop it onto a lettuce leaf with a little mayo on the side. Be sure to use pineapple canned in its own juice, and don't leave out a drop. Cook time is chill time. Enjoy!
Individual servings of a very colorful starter or attractive salad on the side which can be made ahead of time. Super easy for a beginner cook and good for you too! Before you think, eeks, mayonnaise, give it a try, it works really well. Of course you could omit the mayonnaise if you prefer. When we were kids my mom used to make this for us for lunch or for salad at dinner and we all loved it! :)
I tried this last night at Maggiano's and loved it. I prepared this and to my delight found that it is a pretty good imitation of the original. This is a modification of a recipe I found on Recipe Goldmine. I would suggest making "Recipe #239502" instead of pan frying prosciutto, but either works.
This is my mom's recipe and is ever present at all holidays in my family. I changed it to make it sugar free and low fat. However, you can add the full fat cream cheese, and full fat Cool Whip if you want. It tastes great both ways. If you want thick servings use a smaller dish, if you want thinner use a bigger dish, you decide.
