iCooked: Easter Edition
So, it is has been a while since I’ve posted an “iCooked” entry… but to be honest, it has been a while since I’ve tried something new. That’s just life, I guess. In light of Easter, I wanted to share with you a dish that I have been “in charge” of since I was probably 9 years old.
It is a side dish we have for every holiday. Christmas. Easter. New Years. Last Tuesday. You name it, if we gather for a family meal … this salad HAS to be there. We call it simply, “The Orange Salad.”
I made a revision to it last Christmas–to a more Weight Watchers-friendly version at just 2 points a serving.
AND NO ONE EVEN NOTICED!!
Give it a try… it is quite tasty.
The Orange Salad
3 oz Sugar-Free Orange Jell-O Powder
1 cup(s) 1% low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup(s) canned Crushed Pineapple (drained)
1 cup(s) canned mandarin oranges juice pack (drained)
2 cup(s) bag Miniature marshmallows
8 oz Lite Whipped Topping
1 tbsp chopped pecans (optional)
In a medium bowl, mix Jell-O powder, pineapple, mandarin oranges, pecans (optional) and cottage cheese together. Add in Cool Whip. Lastly, mix in marshmallows and move mixture to a serving bowl (optional). Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
