A recipe of love!

First of all, Happy Easter. What a beautiful Minnesotan day it was. Sun, family, and good food. Nothing better. And in honor of this wonderful day, I thought I would share a delicious recipe. My great grandma's green salad. So so so good and every time we make it, which is every holiday, we are reminded of my great grandma and the huge role she played in making our family a true family. So take some time and make this delicious treat for your family. It may just become a tradition for your family too!

G.G. Olga's Green Salad

1 pkg. lemon jello
1 pkg. lime jello
1 cup boiling water
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup cool whip
1 cup small curd cottage cheese
1 cup pineapple crushed
1 cup crushed walnuts

Dissolve lemon and lime jello in boiling water. Add pineapple juice taken from the can of crushed pineapple. Place in fridge to partially set. I usually put mine in the fridge for 45 minutes. Once it has thickened a bit, whip in one cup of cool whip. Once this is completely mixed, add the remaining ingredients. Put in the dish you want to serve in. We use a baking dish that is maybe could also use a square 8x8x2 dish or if you don't care about square pieces, you can place in a bowl. Put back in fridge and let it completely set. Enjoy!
