Orange Jello Salad ... I made this for Thanksgiving. I got the idea from Kelsey. It was a big hit with the boys! I will definitely make it again. I left out the marshmallows - and put them on the side. I'm not a big fan of marshmallows in salads.
1 small package orange Jello (3 oz) 1 (16-oz.) carton cottage chees 1 (8-oz.) container Cool Whip 1 can (11 or 16 oz) mandarin oranges, cut in half and drained 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, drain and squeeze liquid through a sieve (best if drains for 24 hours before use) Mix dry Jello with cottage cheese until dissolved. Add oranges and fold in Cool Whip. Can decorate top with remaining mandarins. Cover and keep cold. Firms up if chilled before serving.
