  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the boiling water, unflavored gelatin, and lime flavored gelatin mix until completely dissolved, about 1 minute. Set aside to cool until slightly thickened. This should take about 1 hour.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, cottage cheese, and horseradish with an electric mixer until foamy. Stir in the pineapple, pecans and salt by hand. Fold the thickened gelatin mixture into the pineapple mixture. Pour into molds, and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.
  3. To release gelatin from molds, dip the mold in hot water for 30 seconds to loosen, then invert onto a serving plate.

I can't get over how good this is! You can even make it sugar-free, thanks to Splenda. It's a year 'round favorite at our house! I don't change a thing...

I first had this years and years ago and could have eaten most of it myself. I'm so happy to have found it again. Just try it and I'll bet it will be a favorite for you too.

I like jello salads and was looking for something different. I thought it sounded a little odd, but with the good reviews decided to give it a chance. Not good!!! The mayo flavor is too strong ...

Very tasty. My children are not fond of any sort of jello salad and would not eat it, so I had it every day for a week until it was gone and I did not tire of it. I used ground horseradish fro...

Too much mayo, for taste and fat. Kids wouldn't eat, maybe if it had been sweeter? Thought I remembered this from childhood, but didn't hit the mark.

Tasty. I was looking for a recipe like my sister has which has layers. I tried to layer, and it tasted good, but the texture was off.
