“This is a jello salad my mom has made ever since I can remember. I had to rename it for Zaar because we call it green "stuff". Don't be put off by the magic ingredient, it gives the jello a great zing. (Time to make includes cooling of boiled water and cooking time is for allowing jello to set.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Empty both boxes of jello into a large bowl and add boiling water. Stir to dissolve and let cool.(I set in refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes.).
  2. Add Miracle Whip and beat to a smooth consistency.
  3. Add cottage cheese and pineapple with the syrup. Mix and refrigerate until set up.
  4. Note-I have also made this with sugar free jello,1%cottage cheese,lite Miracle Whip, and pineapple in its own juice for a lower sugar/calorie/fat version and it works just as well.
