I am quickly putting this on the blog because I had it at a luncheon yesterday and loved it...
And then spent the afternoon in the ER with my beloved son-in-law who ran the foul side of a ground nest of bees...
And then to the other side of the city for my granddaughter's final soccer game of the season.
I NEGLECTED THE CAFE!!! :)
But, having said that, this dessert type salad was amazingly light and delicious! And easy!
Orange Mandarin Jello
1 Lg. Package Orange Jello
1 Can Mandarin Oranges, drained (large can)
1 lb. Cottage Cheese, small curd
1 8 oz Cool Whip
Mix all together. Save a dozen orange segments for garnish, if desired. Once blended, put into pretty bowl. Chill. Serve.
We had this on the dessert table, but it doesn't matter where you put it. It was marvelous! And I'm going to try it with Greek Yogurt, too, to replace the cottage cheese. I think that would hike the protein level and be delicious. I'll let you know!
Our luncheon was absolutely lovely.... and the day was true summer, hot, muggy and slightly buggy... as in real bugs, who seemed to think they were invited to the picnic.
They were not on the invite list, but they showed up anyway!
And all went well, the picnic was ending when my sweet son-in-law brought the farm truck in because he'd been stung. :( What he didn't realize (nor did we) was that he'd been stung dozens of times over his body. He thought the swelling ones on his face were the only ones, but those bees chased this good man right out of those woods...
He's doing well now. Some IV antihistamines and steroids, and he's looking much better.
So I never got the pics of the salad.... But I got the recipe, so that's the best thing!
