FROZEN FRUIT SALAD

This is from a very old recipe clipping and was recommended as a handy "make ahead" recipe for a hot weather day!

1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup halved strawberries
1 cup drained pineapple chunks
1 cup canned peaches, drained and chunked
quartered marshmallows
1/2 cup salad dressing (mayo-type)
2 sliced bananas
1 cup whipped cream
chopped nuts
dash of salt

Combine the cottage cheese, pineapple, strawberries, and peaches and bananas.  Add the chopped nuts and as many marshmallows as desired (use large ones, quartered). In a separate bowl, and the slad dressing to the whipped cream and then fold into the cheese and fruit. Spread the mixture in 2 refrigerator trays and freeze until firm.  Each tray serves 4 to 5.  Remove this salad when ready to serve, cut, and by the time you are ready to eat, it will be thawed enough.

Note:  Never did say where to use the salt!  Refrigerator trays?  Also the last sentence doesn't make a lot of sense but these old recipe are often that way!
