Nippy Pineapple Salad

Lots of baby boomers remember this salad, or variations of it, from the Fifties. It's sweet, tart and, yes, nippy. Quick and easy to put together, it should definitely be revived for the 21st century.

  • 2 small packages (or 1 large package) lime Jell-O
  • 2-1/2 cups hot water
  • 12-ounce can of crushed pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip or other salad dressing)
  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  1. Dissolve Jell-O in the hot water. Chill until partially set.
  2. Mix the other ingredients and fold into the Jell-O.
  3. Pour into mold or 9x13-inch dish and chill until firm.
