fruit salad

Call me a minimalist if you'd like, but the honest to goodness truth is that the recipes that I use all the time, the ones that my kids will eat, are simple, simple, simple. So, I debated...should I share a recipe that I make once a year? Or should I share a recipe that I use ALL. THE. TIME. I chose to share the one that I make a lot. I got this recipe from my mother in law, and it only has three main ingredients! Gotta love that. It isn't a "healthy" salad recipe though, so forgive me for that. It is delicious though! :)

Cottage Cheese Fruit Salad

1 carton cottage cheese
1 3 oz. pkg. jello any flavor
1 9 oz. tub of cool whip

My kids favorite fruits to add to this are bananas and pineapple, but you can add all sorts of fruits.

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and stir until jello is dissolved.

Add fresh fruit of your choice.

Example: sliced bananas, crushed pineapple, strawberries...etc. Yum!

  1. My mom made this for YEARS and now I am the one that brings it to ALL the parties and I am sure you know, its the first thing to go! LOVE it. I could eat the whole bowl. We use mandarin oranges in ours, but I think I am going to add bananas next time too! YUM. Thanks for sharing! :)
