Lime Jello Salad

It's not really a salad and more of a dessert, and it goes by a lot of a lot of other names, but Lime Jello Salad is a classic for potlucks, family gatherings and holiday meals.

1 small box of lime gelatin

1 cup of boiling water

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 cup of cottage cheese

8 oz can of crushed pineapple (drained)

1 cup of Cool Whip (or comparable brand)

1 cup of small marshmallows

1/2 cup of chopped pecans

Combine gelatin, hot water and lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate until the mixture is thickened but not quite set.

Fold in cottage cheese, pineapple, Cool Whip, marshmallows and pecans. Refrigerate until set (typically, overnight).
