1 can (16 ounces) fruit cocktail, drained

1 container (8 ounces) whipped topping

In medium mixing bowl, fold dry gelatin into cottage cheese. Add fruit cocktail and whipped topping. Mix well, cover and chill for at least an hour. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Variation: This salad can be made with orange gelatin, a small can of drained Mandarin oranges and a small can of drained crushed pineapple instead of raspberry gelatin and fruit cocktail, if desired.

DEAR MELBA: Here's a church sign I like and think readers will, too: Untold millions are still untold.

DEAR MELBA: Remember ... if the sun was always shining and we never saw the rain, we might miss some of God's richest blessings.
