Tasty Tuesday: Pineapple Rings in Jello (a 5 minute fruit salad)

This very simple recipe is one that I like to make when I need something fruit salad-ish and am short on time.  It literally takes minutes to make, although it does need several hours refrigeration.  I love the color the pineapple rings add to the table and they are always a hit with everyone, especially children.

Pineapple Rings In Jello
1 can sliced pineapple
1/3 c. Jello (cherry, lime or orange)
2/3 c. boiling water
Cottage Cheese (opt.)

Open one end of can and drain juice from pineapple.  Dissolve Jello in boiling water and pour over pineapple in can.  Refrigerate.  When completely set, open other end of can and remove, using knife to cut around edge.  Slice and serve!  (Here’s where the cottage cheese comes in….you may serve the pineapple rings with cottage cheese if you want or just eat them as is.)
