I'm a Jell-O lover from way back, so this recipe was right down my alley, although I don't think I've ever had one that included melted marshmallows, which in my opinion made this salad outstanding! Will be keeping this one around to make again & again! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

This strawberry jello salad is very good. The combination of strawberry jello with pineapple, cottage cheese and cool whipped are delicious. I did not have large marshmallows in my pantry, so i used 1/2 cup marshmallow cream. Thanks Dienia. I tagged this good recipe for THINK PINK RECIPE TAG EVENT - OCTOBER 2011.

This definitely gets 5 stars for taste. But my salad didn't mold well, it was more like a dense pudding. So I served it that way. No one knew it was supposed to be a molded salad, and they loved it. I've been making Jell-O since I was a teen-ager, so I'm not sure what went wrong with this recipe, since it's not that difficult to prepare. Maybe I miscalculated the amount of liquid. Made for 2013 Think Pink tag game (for breast cancer awareness month).
