A Quick and Yummy Summer Treat

If anyone would like to try a great refreshing summer treat that's not only fast but really good, whip up this delicious multi-faceted salad/dessert for your next picnic, get-together, or mid-week dinner:

One large of Jello (either Peach, Apricot or Orange)
One large (drained) can of Mandarin Oranges
One 20 oz. (drained) can of Pineapple Chunks
One large container of Cool Whip
One 8 oz. container of small curd cottage cheese

Put cottage cheese, Jello, and Cool Whip in a large bowl. Stir together until blended.
Fold in both cans of drained fruit. Either leave in the bowl or put into 13 x 9" cassarole dishes (glass is best), and chill in refridgerator.

*This sets up in less than an hour because there is no real liquid. So grab a spoon and ENJOY!
