This recipe is from my favorite grandmother According to my mother, it has many variations, and my grandmother always served it at parties, family dinners, holidays and ladies luncheons.
Caution: Be careful when you unmold it.
In a bowl, combine the dissolved Jell-O, cold water, mayonnaise, mix thoroughly. Transfer to the freezer or refrigerator and allow it to chill well. When it begins to get firm, remove it from the freezer or refrigerator and beat with an electric beater until fluffy. Add cottage cheese and chopped well drained fruit. Before you put the mixture into a mold, decorate the bottom of the mold with parsley so that when you unmold it there will be a pretty design on top.
You can also
whip the mayo into the hot jello than add the cottage cheese and crushed pinapple. Mold it in a rectangular pan . When chilled and firm, cut in squares, place on a crisp lettuce leaf. top with a dollop of a sourcream mayo mixture and a cherry. Looks very nice on the table and tastes good too.
