green fluff : lime jello fruit salad

this is your grandmother's jello. it's a perennial favorite at family dinners and holiday parties. it's also delish with strawberry or orange jello instead of lime!
this makes a huge bowl of fluff, so if you're not heading to a party, be sure to halve it or scale it down a bit.

green fluff (lime jello fruit salad)

1 (24 ounce) container low-fat small-curd cottage cheese
1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 (3 ounce) package lime Jell-O gelatin
4 (11 ounce) cans mandarin orange segments
1 (16 ounce) can pineapple tidbits
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, finely chopped (optional)

mix cottage cheese, and lime jello together, then fold in Cool Whip until well mixed.
fold in the 1 cup of mini marshmallows.
drain fruit and fold into mixture last.
refrigerate overnight for best flavor.
