    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.

    This recipe was on here earlier and I made it. Didn't like the chunks of cottage cheese, but like crkathleen's idea for straining the cottage. I'll try it again. Thanks.

    Your recipe sounded good, so I tried it out with all diet ingredients...no sugar jello, non fat cottage cheese, light cool whipped topping, etc. It was so delicious. Thank you for sharing a great old classic...I always used a different recipe with pistachio pudding (instant), cool whipped topping, pineapple, marshmellows, walnuts. We always called it the 'green stuff' but I did not know how to make one with cottage cheese. Anyway, all my friends loved it and wanted the recipe. Thanks again. barbb from Victorville, CA

    This sounds Great! We're having our annual friends and family cookout in two weeks. This is definately going to be served. My mum use to make a jello salad each time we were invited to a cookout. She used sour cream. I remember it being very good. I think this will be a fun addition.
