Out of fear that a flash mob potluck may pop up, I decided to tackle a Jello dish that is worthy of such an event. My earliest Jello-related memory is of what we called Pink Salad. It may have been a way for our mom to sneak fruit into our diet, even though I did spend a great deal of time making certain I picked out as much of the fruit as possible. Let's face it, fruit is for cobblers and raccoons. I decided that the best test of my skills would be to try to recreate the recipe from memory rather than actually asking for it. That's always fun. It was pretty simple - fruit cocktail, cottage cheese, strawberry jello, and Cool Whip. I took a guess at the amounts and got close, I believe. One thing I failed to realize was that Cool Whip is still slightly frozen in the middle if you use purchased it about 15 minutes before you use it. This left some streaks of white in the dish, but it was still good. Truly, how can you mess up any recipe that involves Cool Whip. Maybe one day, I will no longer be the person who volunteers for rolls or drinks at the potluck. I dream of the day that I proudly sign the list under "Miscellaneous."
