Marshmallow Lime Salad

Cool, fluffy and green, this salad has lots of kid appeal despite the cottage cheese and mayonnaise mixed in it. My daughter enjoyed this salad as a child, and now her two children love it, too.—Fleda Collins, Talbott, Tennessee

    I can remember preparing this recipe for a shower-it might have been a baby shower, now that I think of it! I did prepare this salad when it was featured in Taste of Home! Instead of lime gelatin, I'd used a 3-oz. package of lemon gelatin and a 3-oz. package of "fruit punch" flavored gelatin in place of the lime gelatin! I'd used canned DRAINED chunks of pineapple which I'd cut into smaller pieces and when I'd chilled this salad, I kept it chilled for at least 1 to 1-1/2 hours. I've found that other flavors of gelatin may be substituted as long as they're compatible for gelatin salads! This salad was tasty! delowenstein
