My granny used to prepare this easy-to-make salad every time I visited because she knew it was one of my absolute favorite of her dishes. I hope you enjoy it, too.
Recipe Makes 6-8 Servings
3 ounce package lime-flavored
1 can crushed pineapple
(15.25 ounce can)
1 cup of Cool Whip
1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese
1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Drain pineapple well, saving the juice.
- Mix Jell-O according to directions on the box. Use the pineapple juice as the liquid, adding enough water (if needed) to make up amount of cold liquid stated on the box.
- Refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until half-set.
- Remove from refrigerator and add in the Cool Whip, cottage cheese, chopped nuts, and crushed pineapple. Mix until very well incorporated. Chill for at least two hours before serving.
