I looked up Beve's salad and it came up with something completely different than what I'm used to. It looks good, but it's the savory version not the dessert version. My family used to eat this during the holiday season all the time.
Giant glass bowl.
1 can mandarin oranges. Drained.
1 medium cottage cheese. Small curds.
1 medium cool whip.
1 3 oz package of Orange Jello. Use dry.
1/2 cup walnuts. Optional.
Mix all ingredients together. Keep in refrigerator until you use it.
Thanks to my fourth grade teacher. She made sure that we knew the difference between desert and dessert.
