Creamy Calico Salad

Serves 8

1 package lime sugar-free Jello
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cottage cheese
cup mayonnaise
cup heavy cream
cup green onion, finely chopped
cup red pepper, finely chopped
cup celery, finely chopped
cup carrot, grated

Place boiling water in blender container, add Jello. Let sit for a minute, then gently run the blender to make sure it is fully dissolved. Add cottage cheese, cream, mayonnaise and blend till smooth. Mix in chopped vegetables and pour into a 4-cup jelly mould or bowl. Chill for at least four hours. Dip mould into larger bowl filled with hot water for a second or two. Unmould onto plate, decorate with red pepper strips. Serve and enjoy!

Notes: this can be made in a bowl, if you like the cottage cheese in chunks. Any combination of chopped vegetables, even dill pickles or olives, that add up to 1 cup can be used, staying away from the more "liquid" types such as tomatoes or cucumber.
