    kittycatmom's Note:

    I'm prefacing this recipe with I'm pregnant and have some strange cravings these days! I really like the combination of cottage cheese and sour cream. I came up with this salad as a result of looking over oodles of recipes! Any flavor of jello will work - you may want to change the fruit to compliment the jello flavor you are using. **Cooking time is chilling time. Updated -- I remade this and agree with reviewer, the jello does need to be dissolved or it will be gritty. This is not a sweet salad, so if you want it sweeter, you would need to use whipped cream or add sugar.

      DD and DH liked this salad (I didn't eat any because of allergy issues). They said it wasn't real sweet like a regular jello salad but was just about right. I also used sugar free jello as that is what I had on hand. Thanks for posting this Kitty! Made for Fall PAC 2009.

      Loved this salad. I used regular jello (not sugar free), fat free sour cream and low fat cottage cheese. I also used a 11 ounce can of mandarin oranges, well drained before adding. I was please with the end product. For myself, I'd not add sugar. Thank you for posting and I'll make this again. Made for *Every DAY Is A Holiday 2009* game

      When I tagged this in "Everyday is a Holiday" I was a bit thrown by the directions saying to stir in the fruit before serving. To me a jello salad is firm set so I added the orange and banana after the cottage cheese, sour cream and jello were blended so they could set together. I now know why it says to add the fruit before serving, it never sets, lol. I would call it a dessert instead of a salad as it's a thin pudding or thick sauce consistency. I didn't want the cottage cheese lumps so I processed the cheese, jello and sour cream for 2-3 mins but it still has "grit" in it. I'm not really sure if it's cottage cheese grit or jello grit that never dissolved because it wasn't dissolved first. I tend to think the latter. The flavor and fruit are quite nice and not at all sweet. In fact. if you have a sweet tooth I'd suggest that you add sugar to taste.
