Low-fat Lemon-Lime Congealed Salad

For the record, I am not a big congealed salad fan. I love this one, though!

Ingredients*:
1 pkg. sugar-free lime Jello
1 pkg. sugar-free lemon Jello
2 c. boiling water
1 #2 can crushed pineapple
1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 c. fat free small curd cottage cheese
1 c. fat free mayonnaise
1/2 c. pecans

Mix both packages of Jello into boiling water. Stir with a whisk for about 3 minutes, until fully dissolved. Add only the juice from the can of crushed pineapple. Chill in refrigerator for about 40 minutes.

Add can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix well and place back in refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
Mix cottage cheese, mayonnaise, crushed pineapple, and pecans together. Add to the Jello mixture. Let chill for 4 to 6 hours.

Enjoy!


*You can use regular versions of any of these ingredients, if you don't wish to go the low-fat, sugar-free route. You can also use other flavors of Jello, like strawberry, orange, peach, etc. I couldn't find lemon Jello this time (thanks for nothing, Wal-Mart Supercenter), so I used two packages of sugar-free lime, which makes it a lot greener.
