This reminded me of the ambrosia salad sold at the deli near my childhood home. So much so, I was sorely tempted to spinkle some toasted coconut over the top. Never knew how they made it and feel like now I have the secret. I used peach jello with gave mine a pale color and mild flavor. Found it a bit too sweet and added an extra 1/4 cup of cottage cheese. Used non-fat cottage cheese and Cool Whip Lite, which helped cut the calories and this fun confection. Thanks Kaarin.
