What I love about this jello-based salad is that it's not too sweet. Like the name implies, it is a "heavenly" accompaniment to everything else on your plate. If you like pina coladas, you'll love this salad. I think it got the name because it looks like a bowlful of divinity candy once it has set up (note that it needs to be refrigerated 12-24 hours before serving). I hope you enjoy this family favorite!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the jello, salt and sugar in the boiling water. Place in the fridge and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  2. While jello mixture is cooling, whip the whipping cream using a mixer on high speed. The whipped cream is ready when it thickens and peaks. Be careful not to over whip.
  3. Add the following to the jello mixture: cottage cheese, pineapple, mayo and nuts. Mix well.
  4. Now gently fold the whipped cream into the jello mixture. This will make the mixture very light and fluffy.
  5. Pour into a pretty presentation bowl.
  6. For a nice presentation at holiday time, garnish with the maraschino cherries and a sprig of parsley to look like holly berries.
  7. Cover and refrigerate for 12-24 hours.
