Lime Cottage Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This is a refreshing summer salad that goes with just about anything. This does not have as many ingredients as some do, but it is sooo good, and very easy to make as I usually have all three of the ingredients on hand most of the time. It is a pretty green and I just love it. We all do. I make it all year long. If you make it with the sugar-free jello and low-fat cottage cheese, it is a great Weight Watcher dish. I have used both kinds, and they both taste the same. It has only 1-2 points per serving.

This is the best! We've called it George's Green Jello as it was a family favorite. No family get-together was complete without this salad. It may sound weird with the combination of foods, but it is refreshing, delicious, and healthy.
