Tangy Cucumber Gelatin

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + chilling


2 servings

A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. She had a vegetable garden and always had a good yield of cucumbers. This pleasant, comforting salad is the right amount for one or two. The cucumber and green onions give a nice texture contrast and refreshing crunch. -Bernadeane McWilliam, Decatur, Illinois


  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup 4% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  1. In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add the cucumber and onions. Stir in cottage cheese and mayonnaise until blended. Pour into two 1-1/2-cup molds coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate overnight or until set. Unmold just before serving.
