This is one of my family's favorite holiday recipes. My mom always made it, and now I do too. We have it at every holiday gathering and everyone loves it.

1 large container of small curd low-fat cottage cheese
1 large pkg. (or 2 small) Jello® gelatin (use orange for Thanksgiving; raspberry for Christmas)
1 large can crushed pineapple
2 small cans of mandarin oranges
1 large container of Cool Whip® whipped topping
Mix cottage cheese and DRY Jello® gelatin mix. Drain off all the juice from the crushed pineapple and the mandarin oranges and add fruit to the cottage cheese mixture. Fold in Cool Whip® and chill 1-2 hours (you can also make this the night before) before serving.
If you want to add chopped nuts or mini-marshmallows, you can. It's soooo good and takes 5 minutes to make!
