Gosnell’s Pink Glop

I thought I would put this here.  It’s a recipe that my mom’s family has had for a very long time. And it’s really good.  When my dad first saw it, he said, “That looks like pink glop.” And so it got a name other than “pineapple fruit salad.” 

So how does one make this?  Here’s the recipe.

Gosnell’s Pink Glop
1.      Can of crushed pineapple (20 oz or more)
2.    Small-curd low-fat cottage cheese
3.    Cool Whip (or other whipped topping)
4.   Jello packet (any flavor, strawberry, cherry, etc. This bowl has strawberry.)
Drain can of crushed pineapple and put the crushed pineapple into bowl.  (Drink pineapple juice. It’s fun!)
Add package of jello into bowl.
Add cottage cheese as desired (you may not need the entire cup of cottage cheese, but I used most of it.)
Add Cool Whip as desired. (I scooped in about 3 large spoonfuls.)
Thoroughly mix.  Add more cottage cheese and Cool Whip until it reaches the desired consistency.
Total time: 5 – 10 minutes
