Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

I Made Heaps!

Luckily my friend Pat Roberts took a picture. She is our family's official photographer. She does the pictures at all our events.


Oh my!

That looks...um...

I can't believe it looks yummy *lol*
It looks like green sand.

I am now curious.

Bu says it looks like moldy bundt cake.

In reality I thought it looked like melting pistachio ice cream.

Re: Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

No, no. The texture is all wrong for mold or ice cream.

It looks like sand you mixed with a dash of green food coloring and molded in a bundt cake pan.

I am still curious.

Re: Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

The texture is very much like that of pistachio ice cream if someone went over board with the pistachios. Creamy with crunchy bits.

Re: Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

What are the crunchy bits? I get the creamy part from the title.

Re: Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

* 1 sm. pkg. lime Jello
* 1 c. boiling water
* 1 c. marshmallows

* 1 c. cabbage, shredded
* 1 c. apples, diced
* 1 c. celery, diced
* 1 c. crushed pineapple (drained)
* 1 c. walnuts, cut up
* 1/4 c. (1 sm can)(2.5 oz)(64g) black olives, sliced
* 1 c. mayonnaise
* 1 c. cottage cheese

* 1/2 pt. whipping cream, whipped

Mix Jello with boiling water until dissolved, add marshmallows and stir until they dissolve, set aside and allow to set slightly.

Add cabbage, apples, celery, pineapple, nuts, olives, mayonnaise, cottage cheese.

Fold in whipped cream, pour into mold, and refrigerate until set, over night is best.

[I actually left out the whipped cream from this batch with no ill effect. But I think two packages of jello would make it hold together better. I should remember to hand chop the apples and celery, using the food processor makes them too watery.]
You have to make this at the next Barb gathering because I just cant even imagine what it tastes like...

Where did you find this recipe and what made you say "hmmm, this is something I would like to try"

Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise

It all started with a song:

Ladies, the minutes will soon be read today.
The garden club and weaving class
I'm sure have much to say...
But next week is our culture night,
Our biggest, best event,
And I've just made a dish for it
You'll all find heaven sent:

It's my lime jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise
With slices of pimento,
(you won't believe your eyes,)
All topped with a pineapple ring
And a dash of mayonaise,
My vanilla wafers 'round the edge
Will win your highest praise.
And Mrs Jones is making scones
That are filled with peanut mousse;
To be followed by a chicken mold
That's made in the shape of a goose.
For ladies who must watch those pounds
We've found a special dish:
Strawberry ice
Enshrined in rice
With bits of tuna fish.

And my lime jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise
(truly a creation that description defies)
Will go so well
With Mrs Bell's creation of the week:
Shrimp salad topped with chocolate sauce
And garnished with a leek.
And Mrs Perkins' walnut loaf
That's crowned with melted cheese
Was such a hit last culture night,
We ask: no seconds please!
Now you must try
Her hot dog pie
With candied mushroom slices...
Those ladies who resigned last year,
They just don't know what nice is!

But my lime jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise,
I did not steal that recipe,
It's lies,
I tell you, lies!
Our grand award:
A picture hat
And a salmon sequined gown
For any girl who tries each dish
And keeps her whole lunch down.
I'm sure you all are waiting
For the biggest news: desert!
We've thought of things
In molds and rings
Your diet to subvert.
You must try our chocolate layer cake
On a peanut brittle base
With slices of bananas
That make a funny face.
Around the edges peppermints
Just swimming in peach custard,
With lovely little curlicues
Of lovely yellow mustard!
If all this is too much for you,
Permit me to advise

More lime jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise!

Wow Nice ! *Claps happily* Looks delish !
