" Orange Fluff "

This salad always reminds me of an orange creamsicle, but our family has always called it "Orange Fluff"- because that's basically what it is --- just fluffy orange-flavored goodness.  

I typically make it with regular Cool Whip and Jello, but this time I substituted Sugar-free Jello and Cool Whip Free, with equally good results. It doesn't get much easier than this with only 4 ingredients! 

1 (16 oz.) cottage cheese (preferably small curd)
1 (3 oz.) package orange gelatin
1 (15 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained
1 (8 oz.) carton Cool Whip, thawed

In a large bowl, sprinkle gelatin powder over cottage cheese and mix well.

Add drained mandarin oranges to cottage cheese mixture.

Stir in Cool Whip .

Mix until well-combined.

Note To Self: Do not read Mimi's Making Meals blog before Lunch, it will cause your stoamch to eat itself and then nothing that you eat could possibly compare to the amazing meals you saw pictured on the site.
