    Terri F.'s Note:

    This is a light fruit salad that goes well with chicken or pork. The cottage cheese keeps it from being overly sweet. Please note prep time includes chilling time. Kids like this, too!

      This turned out to be light and delicious! We didn't think it was overly sweet at all. I used strawberry jello, fruit cocktail, and small English walnut pieces. Terri F., thank you for the recipe! It's a keeper!!

      Subbed a cup of full fat sour cream plus 1/4 cup plain kefir for the Cool Whip to avoid the hydrogenated palm kernel oil (blech). Used parfait glasses and poured a layer of sugar-free orange gelatin mixed per usual instructions. Once it set, split a can of light syup drained mandarin oranges between the 4 glasses. Made the smush using sugar - free orange gelatin. Plenty sweet w/o so much empty carb. Pretty and filling Keeper. Will try w/peach gelatin and canned peaches next w/same layering.

      This was very good, but it just seemed too sweet to me with the addition of the jell-o. Next time I guess I wouldn't add the whole packet. Also, it really didn't seem like it had enough fruit so next time I am going to add more. It comes out pretty mushy so I definitely recommend adding some kind of nuts into this; I added pecans and they were a great addition. I also added some miniature marshmallows.
