“A tangy pineapple and peach flavored gelatin salad. I didn't tell anyone it had buttermilk until they ate it. Everyone wanted the recipe!”

  1. Place the pineapple in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Stir in the gelatin mix until completely dissolved. Remove to a bowl, and chill until partially set, about 1 hour. Stir in buttermilk, and chill again until thickened. Fold in whipped topping, and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.

This is my new fave gelatin recipe because it's so easy to prepare, pretty to look at and delicious! I used raspberry Jello and powdered reconstituted buttermilk and it was still great. A quick tip--you don't need to cool completely/let it set up in between additions. Cook the pineapple, add the Jello, and you can immediately add the buttermilk. As soon as it's cool enough to not melt the Cool Whip you can put it all together. I put it in a small/med oiled mold which was a mistake--this makes enough for a 13"x9" pan. However, the mold looked great! All in all, this is a great recipe, thanks for sharing it!



Unbelievably easy to make. Light and fluffy, yet molded nicely. I used Raspberry-Cranberry jello instead of peach. I also used Fat Free whipped topping to cut calories. Personally, I do not like buttermilk, but there is not even a hint of the taste in this salad. Will use this recipe a lot in the future. Thank you, Deb, for sharing.

Deb, Thanks so much for contributing this recipe. I used to make this years ago and couldn't find my old recipe. It is EXCELLENT! Don't tell the family it is made with buttermilk and they'll never, ever know! Happy Holidays!
