Dairy Recipe Celebrates St. Patrick Luck

In honor of St. Patrick's Day on March 17th, my church is planning a Sunday dinner with a green theme. It's always fun to see what creative dishes may appear from some of the best cooks in the county! 

I've  eaten Lemon-Lime Gelatin Salad   at many  potluck dinners but never made it myself so I'm hoping  St. Patrick's Day will hopefully bring me good luck in the kitchen!  After all, legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.

Lemon-Lime Gelatin Salad

1 (3oz.) pkg. lime gelatin
1 (3oz.) pkg. lemon gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained with juice reserved
1 cup small curd  cottage cheese
1 cup cream or evaporated milk
1 c. mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped  pecans

In a large measuring pitcher, mix reserved pineapple juice and enough water to yield 2 cups. Pour into a pot and bring to a boil. Add the lime and lemon gelatin mixes and stir until completely dissolved.

Stir the mayonnaise and evaporated milk together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the gelatin mixture until completely blended. Mix in the crushed pineapple, cottage cheese, and pecans. Pour the gelatin mixture into a serving bowl. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

                                                              Happy St. Patrick's Day!
