Mandarin Orange Fluff Jello Salad
 
My mother used to make a similar salad using canned mandarin oranges. She called it a congealed salad. If you want it to be purely smooth, you can run the cottage cheese through the blender before mixing it in
 

1½ cups heavy cream or heavy whipping cream, very cold

1 Tablespoon sugar

16 oz small curd cottage cheese

6 oz orange flavored gelatin (or two 3oz packages)

8 oz can crushed pineapple, very well drained

2 cups of mandarin orange segments, about 6 – 8 oranges

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whip together whipping cream and sugar until soft peaks form.
  2. Fold in cottage cheese.
  3. Thoroughly mix in orange gelatin (still in powder form, don’t actually make the gelatin). You don’t want to still see powder streaks or the salad will be gritty.
  4. Fold in pineapple (make sure it’s very well drained or it will water down the salad) and mandarin orange segments.
  5. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Leftovers last about 3 days refrigerated, but salad may start watering down.
