I've been making this for holidays for many, many years and my kids and grands insist on it. I've never added nuts tho.

This recipe is so versatile. My favorite rendition is to use raspberries with raspberry Jell-O. Using strawberries is also a hit around here. Blueberries with blue gelatin. If you can imagine it, you can make it. I have also used cream cheese in place of the cottage cheese and added a small package of miniature marshmallows.
