count down to Thanksgiving #9- Jennifer's layered cornucopia salad...

this is a Recipe Club blast from the past!  i can't even tell you who brought this salad originally, but it was at the very beginning of recipe club; about 3 years ago.  it is so super yummy & different.  The cottage cheese gives it the cream texture while still using a vinaigrette dressing.  If your food assignment this year is green salad... this recipe is for YOU!!!  ** this recipe was originally brought by Jennifer.  Thanks Summer for the help.  it is a favorite of mine too!
