Amish Dry Lime Gelatin Salad / Dessert (Jello)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Found on A recipe seldom gets any easier than this one. Kids could make this with just a bit of supervision. My mother used to make something like this that had these same ingredients. This is much like her's, and since she was not a dessert maker, I am sure she would have opted for a simple recipe. Other flavors of gelatin work too, like Cherry and Strawberry which are perfect for Valentine's Day. NOTE: Times do not include the 2-3 hours for chilling time. Servings are approximate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 4-6 quart bowl, pour dry gelatin over cottage cheese, pineapple, whipped topping and nuts; stir together well.
  2. ***Chill 2 to 3 hours***.

My mother made this recipe all the time when I was a kid. She used pecan pieces instead of walnuts. She would let the jello slightly thicken in the refrigerator before adding in the other ingredients, and then chill it thoroughly. A delicious salad!

So yummy! My mother also made this while I was growing up and used pecan pieces as well. It's so good, and I'm glad to add it to my "go to list" for get togethers. Light and so good! Thanks for posting!! : )

I really loved this creamy salad... I used cherry jello and it was quite good as a snack and light dessert. I am on a quest to find the "jello salad" I remember eating when I was younger and while this was close, still not "the one"! It was a little grainy for me... I guess more stirring would help that? But good flavor... thanks for posting!
