My mother would make this Strawberry Fluff Cottage Cheese Salad when I was growing up. This is about the only way you would ever catch me eating cottage cheese. The strawberry gelatin, strawberries, and whipped topping are excellent at concealing the loathsome, but healthy, cottage cheese. Substituting low fat and/or sugar free ingredients can make this light and fruity dessert a healthy option, too.

This is one of those desserts that’s hard to mess up. The one thing that will mess this recipe up is using a frozen strawberry product without straining the liquid. Please remember to strain your strawberries if you use frozen strawberries. You can easily by-pass this issue altogether by slicing fresh strawberries.
In a nice and large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, whipped topping (like Cool Whip), strawberry gelatin powder, and sliced strawberries. Stir it until all the ingredients are well combined. That’s it! Pretty simple, huh?
My mother and I would often eat this Strawberry Fluff Cottage Cheese Salad for breakfast, with our lunch, and as a dessert after dinner. It would make a lovely light dessert for Easter or a Mother’s Day Brunch (or any brunch). Strawberry Fluff Cottage Cheese Salad could tag along at your next potluck, gathering, picnic, or barbecue. Anyplace that you might need a light dessert or side dish would be perfect. This should be kept refrigerated so keep that in mind when deciding where to serve this.
