A creamy fruit salad with oranges, cherries and pineapple.The orange salad my cousin sent me was a big hit. Today we tried it in pink. Yum, it was good too! And I'm sure it would be great with strawberries. Here is what we did.


  • 2 small boxes of cherry Jello (dry)
  • 1 small can Mandarin oranges, drained and cut in thirds
  • 1 can drained crushed pineapple
  • 1 16 oz. cottage cheese
  • 1 cup coconut, finely shredded
  • 1/2 jar Maraschino cherries, cut in half
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries (or fresh cherries or grapes)
  • 1 8 oz carton Cool Whip, thawed


In a large bowl, start by adding the 2 packets of Jello to the drained pineapple. Mix well. Add the oranges, cherries and cottage cheese, banana, coconut and marshmallows. Fold in Cool Whip last. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Servings: a bunch
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 0 Minutes

I think this is going to be dessert just as soon as I can bring in all the ingredients. It sounds just wonderful, and I love the nice assortment of fruits.

Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

My Grandmother Velma made a dessert like this a few times for Christmas and so did my mother Reva, but I unfortunately never got the recipe. This sounds very, very similar. I am going to try it first without the bananas, and mandarin oranges and mini marshmallows I don't remember those being added to theirs. Also in half of the recipe I am going to try adding chopped walnuts. (My husband doesn't like nuts put in desserts so he will prefer his half without like your recipe LOL) I have looked for years for a recipe like this. Thank you so very much for posting! God Bless!
