    We got this recipe 40+ years ago from a friend named Jenny, so my kids always called it Jenny's salad... later shortened to Jenny Salad

    1 container cottage cheese (16 oz)
    1 container cool whip (9 oz)
    1 can* mandarin oranges, well drained
    1 can* pineapple chunks, well drained
    1 large pkg orange flavored Jello, pour right from packet, dry**
    Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Refrigerate for 12 hours.

    You can alter with different fruit (even fresh) combinations and Jello flavor.

    * Size of fruit cans depend upon how much fruit you want.

    **Use either regular Jello or no-sugar Jello, and you can adjust amount of Jello according to taste.
    Can be a side dish or dessert.

    This so good. I use sugar-free Jello. Also taste good without pineapple.

    I make this recipe. The only difference is I strain my cottage cheese. It makes it very thick and creamy. I also mix the cool whip and jello together first. It makes it mix together faster. Ohhh... Only think I'm missing in the cool whip. I think I will have to make some!

    We also make this for just about all family get together dinners.
    We use crushed pineapples, and that is where I put my jello. Seems to make it a little stiffer when it's chilled.
    We add fruit to match the color/flavor jello we're using. Cherries with cherry flavored jello....mandarine oranges in orange flavored jello, etc. Pineapples go in no matter what color/flavor we make.
    No matter what color/flavor we make, we call it 'the pink stuff'. We love it!

    This is my favourite jello salad. I use 2 cans on oranges though. It is also good with lime or lemon jello.
