Pineapple and Cottage Cheese Ambrosia

This particular recipe is very retro and is one of  the popular recipes for cheese salad in the 60’s  and 70’s.

In some ways it is similar to fluff, Watergate salad,  cheddar cheese salad and fruit cocktail salad with whipped cream. All of these very popular for potlucks, holiday get togethers and barbecue cookouts. And isn’t it always delicious to have a bowl of something sweet can you get a spoonful of?  If you’re bringing it to a bbq, you’ll be leaving with an empty bowl.

It’s Dairy Month!

Let’s eat it up with milk, cheese, cream, and every manner of dairy recipe possible!
