Simple Celery Salad

I love celery.  Always have preferred it over carrots, which are sometimes just too hard for me to chew.

So when I was given this recipe many years ago I was excited to know my hubby really liked it too.

I recently had celery that needed to be eaten, and so....this is the recipe I went to.

Only I normally make it with lime jello, so I realized after using
lemon, I really do prefer the lime, but it's good either way.
I just used what I had on hand.

Can't go wrong.  Give it a try.  It's easy and delicious.


CELERY SALAD

1 3 ozs. pkg. lime or lemon jello
(I use sugar free of course)
3/4 c. boiling water
3/4 c. mayonnaise
2 c. finely diced celery
1 c. cottage cheese
1 c. chopped nuts
(we prefer pecans)

Dissolve jello in boiling water; chill for about 20 minutes or until it just begins to set up. Whisk in the mayonnaise until smooth, then add remaining ingredients. 

Pour into pan and let chill until set.

Yield: 4 servings

(Prior to Weight Watchers Points Plus made this equal to 2 points each serving)
