I've been in a food rut the last several weeks. A combination of the heat, busy-ness, and pure unadulterated laziness have contributed to a steady diet of the same few things over and over again. I finally decided to break my boredom streak by making a luscious sweet summer dish that can double as a fruit salad and as a light dessert. It's quick and easy, and be dressed up or down to meet almost any one's taste or budget.
- 1 large or two small containers of cottage cheese
- 1 small container cool whip
- 1 pkg jello, any flavor (I nearly always use strawberry, no matter what fruit I use)
- fresh, canned, or frozen fruit of your choice
Stir together until the dark pink is completely blended
And since I'm the only one in my family who eats this particular fruit salad (cause they think they don't like cottage cheese), it gets a real work-out when I make this.
And yes, except for the cottage cheese-container-full that I took to my parents, I ate the whole bowl. In two days. For dessert. And snacks. And breakfast.
It has cottage cheese and fruit in it, it has to be good for you, right?
