Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. In another bowl, mix together cream cheese, celery, avocado, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, and salt. Mix in onion juice, if using. Gradually stir in the gelatin mixture. Pour into an 11x7 inch glass baking dish, and refrigerate until set.
  2. Cut the gelatin salad into squares, and serve each square on top of a leaf of butter lettuce. Make the salad dressing by mixing the 1/2 cup mayonnaise with confectioners' sugar and lemon juice to taste. Drizzle dressing over squares, and garnish with toasted pecans.

People who liked this had 2nd helpings, but others didn't even finish their 1st helping and thought it had a "funny" taste (because of the avacado)and just pushed it around their plates. Mixed review, totally.

I liked it, Mom loved it, Husband thought it was okay. The texture is creamy, the flavor is sweet lime, not overly sweet so it can be a salad or as mom says a dessert. The dressing is something I can live without but it does go well with the jello mold. I loved the texture so smooth and creamy.
