This creamy, dreamy Cottage Cheese Jello Salad is one of my favorite treats once the weather turns warm in the spring and summer. It’s perfect for potlucks, backyard barbecues, and family reunions!

This recipe has the potential to be the most divisive one I’ve posted here on House of Nash Eats. It seems to be one of those things you either love or you hate. I love it. My husband can’t stand the stuff. His loss, my gain, I say.I grew up with this cottage cheese jello salad at every family reunion and potluck. I don’t remember it ever having a name – we just called it “the pink stuff” or “the orange stuff” depending on the color at the time. But it was always the offering I went back for over, and over, and over, loading up my plate with giant spoonfuls of the stuff.

Wow, talk about an easy salad to make this is it! Now, my Grammie didn’t have a name on this recipe so I just gave it a name. I remember eating this jello when I was a kid. I love that it has cottage cheese in it and it is light, creamy and just the right amount of sweet. It would be great to be served at Easter time or any holiday with the flavor of jello you love.


1 can(s) crushed pineapple (well drained)
1 pt cottage cheese
3 oz package of jello any flavor
10 oz carton of cool whip


1. Gather together your 4 ingredients.
2. Sprinkle dry jello out of box over the top and mix. Fold in the cool whip.
3. Mix pineapple and cottage cheese together and chill. (Grammie says that the lime jello or orange pineapple were her favorite)
