    Orange jello salad

    Hi all, Hope you can help jog my increasingly poor memory. In the 70's used to make a jello salad. Believe it was one pkg. of orange jello, a small container of cottage cheese, a container of whipped topping. Was a can of crushed pineapple also used and/or a drained can of mandarin oranges? Feel the need to go down memory lane, but can't remember where the map is! Thanks.

    It sounds like the one we did. We stirred dry jello into the cottage cheese, added the drained fruit then folded in "Dream Whip". That tells you my age.

    My younger sister was reading one of my recipes that called for a pkg of "Dream Whip" she asked how much "Cool Whip" would that be?

    Do they even make packets of Dream Whip anymore? I believe we're of the same generation!

    I think it's pineapple, it would be for me , although I think you could use either one. If you like oranges better, then use oranges. Either way would be good.

    I made it recently with both mandarin oranges and crushed pineapple but found it to be too much liquid. I think I would use one or the other but not both. I used the 8 oz size can of pineapple.

    We just had someone bring this to the chili night this month. Good dessert for the summer. She used mandarin oranges but I would like it with pineapple too. And she put coconut in it. I told her I would be curious about using ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese and she said she would try it next time. I just cannot leave well enough alone..

    Thanks to all for your input! High heat and humidity coming tomorrow in central NYS. The pork loin will go into the crockpot with BBQ sauce, a mac salad is chilling as I write this. Throw in a green salad and this orange salad and NO heat will be generated in the kitchen unless it's me having hot flashes.

    Substitute buttermilk for half of the liquid and leave the cottage cheese out. Sounds crazy, but it is very refreshing in the summer. I use both pineapple and mandarin oranges. Some people do not like the feeling of the cottage cheese in their
    mouth.

    Dream Whip is still available at my grocery store also here in North Dakota. Haven't checked Walmart or Target. I had a box of it when I moved last November!

    Our family called this "Jello Whip Salad" and in addition to the Cottage cheese, orange jello, mandarin oranges and Cool Whip (I always substituted homemade whipped cream without added sugar) we always put in fruit flavor marshmallows.

    It was our kid's favorite holiday/picnic dish!

    Yes, you can buy Dream Whip. The box has a recipe on the back for "Dream Pie". It is delicious, I make it all the tiime and use 2% milk and sugar free pudding. We eat it as a pudding unless I am taking a dish for some occasion, then I put it in a pie shell.

    You are almost correct, just few minor changes.
    1 package orange jello
    1 large carton cottage cheese, rinsed and drained
    1 regular size can pineapple crushed and drained, save some liquid
    1 can mandarin oranges dained
    1 8 oz. carton coolwhip
    Stir well till mixed. Judge how much coolwhip you need by taste. I use some of the pineapple juice to mix in with a cup or two of mini marshmellows, when marshmellows become soft stir them into the jellomix. Adjust taste and add more ingredients if needed. You can't fail.

    We make this all the time. The original recipe that my Mom made was with Lime Jello and pineapple, cottage cheese and cool whip. My SIL prefers Cherry or Raspberry jello. I usually add mini marshmellows and chopped nuts. We call it Fluff.

    I also use this recipe once in a while. I put my fruit in a drainer and let it drain overnight or for a couple of hours (if I have the time.) Makes for a less soupy dish.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I use the above recipe but I use either pineapple or m. oranges, I do not use both. Also good if you use peach jello in the place of orange. It is fast if I don't have enough cottage cheese, put in what you have and it works anyway. I use it alot for dinners and often take it when I need to have a quick salad for church dinners or unexpected guests.

    I make a similar recipe with lime jello.
    1 small pkg. lime jello
    1 small container of cottage cheese
    1 small container of cool whip
    1 drained can of crushed pineapple in its own juice
    1/2 cup chopped pecans

    Just mix and refrigerate. You could use any flavor of jello.
