tristen I do believe you put the jello in dry…The cottage cheese is wet and will mix it in real good…

Thank you for the recipe. I think it's great. I was just diagnosed 3 weeks ago and have been trying to figure out recipes for things I could eat, other than just plain fruits & veggies, and plain meat and breads. I can add this to what I have - that makes one good recipe. ;o)

if you cut the recipe in half twice it would average out to be about 25 servings. that would be:
1 carton of the whipped topping
1 package of gelatin
1 cup of cottage cheese
and 3 cans of mandarin oranges

cool whip is an example of frozen whipped topping. You can also get dairy free frozen whipped topping. This can serve up to 100 people.

I have made this many times , use 1 can crushed pineapple drained , I large container of small curd cottage cheese, 1 box of lime jello , dry mix, and 2 containers of sugar free cool whip, also use sugar free jello. Mix it all together and chill it, makes a big bowl , I also add chopped walnuts, It is very good and it makes a good desert for diabetics.

If I did my figures right about 1/3 cup is a serving size. This recipe is simular to the Watergate Salad of the 1970's. It also is green. The green color comes from pistachio flavored pudding mix used in it.

sounds similar to a recipe. Seafoam Salad is the lime gelatin cottage cheese crushed pineapple and option of adding crushed nuts.

Anonymous - I'm 99% sure you would just add the gelatin from the box. This sounds kind of like a recipe I used to make with similar ingredients except canned pineapple instead of mandarin oranges, no cottage cheese and chopped nuts.

This should have been given for 10 servings. IngredientsIt could easily have been cut in half if necessary. It was ridiculous to post a recipe for 100 people. Why not for 10 then it could be multiplied by whatever number needed.
Annonymous just follow directions in recipe. Does not say to prepare anything as directed on package.

maybe i'm just dense, but do you prepare the lime gelatin according to package directions first and then add it to the other ingredients? or do you just add the powder from the box of lime gelatin?
