I love this! My mother-in-law introduced it to me and it's a family favorite. We just mix everything together in one bowl, chill, and serve. I usually use sugar-free jello, fat-free cool whip and cottage cheese, and it's nearly as good without the guilt. I've seen a couple of comments about the gelatin... you DO NOT make the jello, you just mix the packet in. Enjoy!

This salad was ok tasting but the cottage cheese gave it a weird texture. I have found another recipe that had the taste I was expecting with a light and fluffy texture. ORANGE MANDARIN SALAD 1 lg. box orange Jello, 1 (6 oz.) can mandarin oranges,drain, save juice 1 c. Cool Whip. Prepare Jello using basic directions on box. Use mandarin juice for some of the water. Put in bowl deep enough to use electric mixer. Chill until partially jelled. Beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add mandarin oranges and Cool Whip. Chill and serve.

Yummy salad, Susie. I have made this several times, using different flavors of gelatin and fruit. I have never tasted a bad combination. So experiment to find your favorites. I do cut back on the Cool Whip by about one-fourth. A little too sweet if the whole amount is used. Thanks for sharing :)

My mom has made this Orange Salad for many, many years. I couldn't quite remember how to make it so I found your recipe. It is exactly like mom used to make and oh so delicious! Always has been a favorite of mine, especially during the summer months. Excellent and highly recommended. Don't let the though of cottage cheese in the recipe scare you away! It is delicious!

I used sugar free jello, sugar free Cool Whip and low fat cottage cheese (blended in a food processor to make it creamy). Very good for a low sugar dessert. My diabetic dad loved it!

this is a versital you use just about any flavor of gelatin you prefer

This didn't look too pretty but tasted really good. It didn't say to dilute the jello but I assumed you would make it according to package directions. I added the package directions hint of substituting part of the water with soda (I used diet orange and sugar free jello for my diabetic dad) and it was very tasty. I think the next time I make it I will blend the cottage cheese with the partially set jello then add the fruit and whipped topping. I might add some nuts and maybe coconut next time too.

This is home food for me - my mom used to make a similar dish every summer for us growing up. I don't know how many reunions she took this to. She used a blender to give the cottage cheese a smoother texture. I love this although my son prefers his jello just "plain please"...
