Green Stuff

Have you ever seen a recipe, and thought “NO WAY”. Well, today I would like to share one of those type recipes. Growing up, my mom made a green gelatin salad every year for Christmas. Thankfully as a kid I did not realize what was in it, or I may not have eaten it. Cottage cheese and lime jello, are not a combination I would have tried.

We called it “green stuff”. When my mom gave me the recipe before I got married the recipe card said “green stuff”. I guess it is because my sister and I could not pronounce the word congealed or gelatin, who knows. But to help you I will call Green Gelatin Salad.

I’m not sure why we only had it at Christmas, I think it goes great for St. Patrick’s Day. I have found that green deserts are a little hard to find.
