Lots of baby boomers remember this salad, or variations of it, from the Fifties. It's sweet, tart and, yes, nippy. Quick and easy to put together, it should definitely be revived for the 21st century.

2 small packages of lime Jell-O (or one large package)
2-1/2 cups hot water
12-ounce can of crushed pineapple
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cups cottage cheese

Dissolve Jell-O in the hot water. Chill until partially set. Mix the other ingredients and fold into the Jell-O. Pour into mold or 9x13-inch dish and chill until firm.
