Strawberry Pomegranate Cottage Cheese Salad

classic family salad

Ahhhhh....cottage cheese salad. It brings back so many memories! This has been a staple at all of our family gatherings for years and it is something that everyone likes (including the kids). It is easy to make, so it is a great way to let kids "help" in the kitchen. I have Boo help me, although he has taken more to licking out the whip cream container more than actually stirring!

We enjoy three fabulous variations of this recipe: orange, pineapple with lemon or lime, and most recently, strawberry pomegranate! Try it for your next family get together and see if it is a big hit like it is in ours!
