Be sure you really squeeze the moisture out of the pinneapple, if not it can be a little runny. I made that mistake on my first try too.
This was VERY good and tasty.. mine came out kinda runny(i don't know what I did wrong..LOL) but it was still good and the kids really liked it and they DO NOT like cottage cheese and they didnt even know it was in there. a very good way to hide cottage cheese!!!
Very easy and tasty. I took it to a covered dish party and there was none left. The only thing I added was a half cup of chopped pecans.
This salad went over in a big way on my Canada Day bbq buffet dinner; nobody guessed they were eating cottage cheese, either! It was extremely simple to prepare, looks very pretty with its pale orange colour, and disappeared fast. Since I had to buy my ingredients in Canada, I used a 500g tub of cottage cheese and the entire contents of a 1L tub of Cool Whip; this is a little more than the (imperial) recipe called for but it still worked perfectly. Great recipe; I even had to give it out twice!
Pretty good! I liked it, but my husband didn't, so i've almost eaten the whole recipe myself!!! I couldn't find a 12 oz. cottage cheese, but found that the 8 oz. will work. Thanks for posting!
Ah.....a forgotten family favorite! The only thing I changed was adding a whole container of lowfat cottage cheese (24oz)instead of 12oz. This makes a lot and the flavor is wonderful. It tastes like a dessert!
My mother made this 35 years ago with strawberries and strawberry jello. I'd eat it for dessert. Thanks for the memories.
This was great! I made it low cal/low sugar. I used sugar free Jell-o, pineapple in it's own juice, sugar free cool whip, and 1% low fat cottage cheese. Tried to fine Mandarian oranges in it's own juice but could only find light syrup. I was very carefull to squeeze the juice from the crushed pineapple as everyone mentioned. I must have did a good job because it wasn't runny at all. Next time I think I might try a little less cool whip and perhaps some chopped pecans. I highly recommend this recipe for the orange/pineapple lovers.
I tweaked this recipe as well. 16 oz cottage cheese, sf orange jello, only 1/2 the tub of cool whip and a dash of vanilla extract. I wanted my protein content higher and not as sweet as the whole tub of topping would have been. Tasted like a creamsicle! Yummy and a keeper.
I love this stuff! I use raspberry jello, pineapples (instead of oranges) and add pecans with all of the other ingredients. It is so yummy. I use sugar free jello and cool whip and it's still great without all of the extra sugar. Thank you so much for posting this.
