    You know..the one that you see at bbq's & picnics, its got marshmallows, mandarin oranges, probably some whip cream & cherries to make it pink?
    Had some at a wedding picnic and would like to make for July 4th.
    Can anyone help? Oh..and i could really go for some right now haha

    don't know if this is the one you're looking for but here's what I do---
    1 container Cool Whip
    1 container small curd cottage cheese
    1 pkg Jello (flavor depends on what fruits you add)
    chopped fruit - strawberries, mandarin orange sections cut up, crushed pineapple
    If I use strawberries then I sprinkle some strawberry Jello to give it a pink color and so on. Don't need the whole package, just to taste and color.
    My family loves it.

    I love your subject line. My husband would say something like, "What is she talking about?"
    It made me laugh that so many of us knew exactly what you were talking about. I think it's a woman thing :) :)!

    My husband would probably start typing without looking for the recipe. I'm very fortunate. He's a fantastic cook. Some things he cooks better than me. Like sausage gravy and biscuits, fried potatoes, pizza from scratch. And I let him and play dumb. LOL
