Lime Jello Salad

I just received a recipe from an awesome reader, and I would like to share it with you.
This is what she said...

Lime Jello Salad (for Christmas)

*2 small pkgs lime jello
*1 small pkg lemon jello
*1-1/2 cups boiling water
*1 16 oz carton cottage cheese
*1 can crushed pineapple (including the juice)
*1/2 pint whipping cream, whipped
*maraschino cherries, well-drained & cut in half, save the juice
*nuts chopped

Dissolve the 3 pkgs of jello in the boiling water.
 Stir in the remaining ingredients, one at a time. Be careful not to get any cherry juice mixed in with the jello to muddy up the color.
When everything is stirred together, pour into glass pyrex dish (I use the large oblong one).
Carefully place in the refrigerator.
When it's started to "set", remove from the fridge, and dip the tines of a fork into the remaining cherry juice, and sort of splatter the juice onto the top of the jello to add some color to it & make it pretty.
Place jello salad back in the fridge.

Doesn't that sound so yummy? I love the juice splatterings. That sounds so fun to do!
