My mom has made this recipe for years. She uses orange and pineaple jello, madrine oranges and pineapples! OMG This is so good, a great summer treat!

Sorry, but thought this tasted just weirdly artificial! Maybe it's something that needs to grow on you...

This recipe has been our family's much-loved, always EXPECTED dish for special gatherings for nearly 40 years! We've affectionately dubbed it "Pink Stuff" and use strawberry gelatin. One comment was it was "gritty". Do NOT prepare gelatin with water as a remedy. Use DRY gelatin (powder). It probably turned out gritty because it wasn't refrigerated long enough...allow 1-2 hours for the gelatin to dissolve and for the salad to firm up without grit. (I wonder if it's possible that using a "past its date" gelatin or a non-Jello brand may cause grittiness? We always use Jello brand and have NEVER had a problem with "grit.") Add fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries to the recipe for a REAL yummy treat. Note: I have tried this with "you-whip-it" type toppings--both liquid and dry--and they wouldn't set up. We, too, have had people say they don't like cottage cheese but like this salad. It is debatable whether its a salad or a refreshing light dessert--more like an ambrosia. We have served it both ways. :-) Enjoy!

Used fat free whipped topping & cottage cheese + sugar free jello. Very tasty!!

My mom also has made this for years - we called it "pink salad" - until she started using orange jello. She uses mandarin oranges and pineapple chunks along with pecans and miniature marshmallows. Really easy to adapt to your taste.

My mom made this all the time when I was young. We called it "pink stuff". Intead of rasberry, she used strawberry......and sometimes added pecans. I love this stuff!

Pretty, tasty and easy to do. I may add oranges and other fruit to this as it would be good too. Thanks for a good picnic recipe!
