Bubu's fruit salad.

Hi all from one of the little chefs!!! My bubu (pronounced BOO-BOO), which means 'grandma' in Marshallese, (My grandparents went to the Marshall islands for one of their missions.) came over one time and we were trying make a dish sorta like this and she told us what we should put in it. It's really good. ;) About 6/8 of us like it. Here's the recipe:

Bubu's fruit salad
1 Lb (16 oz) cottage cheese
1 8 oz (226g) whipped or "cool" whip
2 11 oz (311g) or 1 22 oz can mandarin oranges
1 box of flavored gelatin or jello

Now the only thing you need to do is put all of the ingredients in a bowl and put in fridge until you are ready to serve. Here are the pictures of me making it:
The ingredients.

And stir it all up!!!! (make sure that NO white is showing and that there isn't to much pink in one spot)

And the finished product!

And Dad tasting!!!! Hope you all like it!! I know I do!!! There you go.
