Banana Split Cottage Cheese Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Pilates Gal

This came from one of Joanna Lund's cookbooks but I've played with it a little. A great breakfast or dessert as well as light lunch or snack.

A really delicious way to use cottage cheese in a new way to get my calcium in. I was out of lemon jello so I used sugar free orange...worked out fine. Think I may even try vanilla pudding next time. Very versatile. Thanks for posting. Pam

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pineapple. Toss banana in a little lemon juice to prevent browning if you like.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, drained pineapple and dry gelatin. Fold in Cool Whip. Add pecans, bananas and strawberries. Mix gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. I sometimes add a handful of sweetened dried cranberries. I also don't worry too much about the measurements of the banana and strawberry, tossing in more or less to suite my taste.
