Lime Gelatin Salad7 Reviews
“This is a great recipe my mom got from my aunt. It is a family tradition for us. It can be made a day or two ahead of time, if you like. It looks just beautiful in a cut crystal bowl. We just 'gobble' it up! If pecans aren't your favorite. substitute walnuts. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.” - by SHECOOKS2
Original recipe yields 8 - 10 servings
- Pour 1 cup boiling water over the gelatin mix in a large bowl. Stir it until it is dissolved. Add 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Place it in the refrigerator to partially gel. It is important that the gelatin is only partially gelled.
- Meanwhile, cook the pineapple in a small saucepan until it boils. Let it cook about 5 minutes. Cool it to room temperature.
- When the gelatin is partially gelled, blend the softened cream cheese into it until it is creamy. Mix in the cooled, cooked pineapple.
- Whip the cream until it is fluffy. Fold it into the gelatin-cream cheese mixture. Fold the nuts into the gelatin mixture. Pour it all into a pretty crystal bowl and place it in the refrigerator to completely gel.

"I started to make this recipe because it sounded good, but then, as I was making it, I realized it wasn't quite right. The ingredients call for 1 1/2 cups water, but the directions call for 1 cup wat..." See moreer and 1/2 cup pineapple juice. I didn't have the pineapple juice, since it wasn't listed in the ingredients, I didn't buy it. I tried draining my canned pineapple juice, but didn't get anywhere near 1/2 a cup. I called a friend who makes a similar salad. She says hers calls for 3 cups of liquid. This one has 2. I decided to add the 3 just to be safe. Also, this recipe asks for the pineapple to be cooked. I decided not too, since it was neither fresh, nor frozen, I figured it wouldn't interfere with the jello setting up. It was a good recipe, once I had it figured out, but I'm glad I didn't just dive into it or ask one of the kids to do it or it may have not turned out well."
"I was looking for a lime gelatin salad recipe for my mom and this one fit the bill. I made the recipe as stated and it turned out just fine. Thanks for sharing!..." See more"
"I followed the recipe with the added ingredient of the 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Didn't cook the pinapple either as it was a can. Everyone liked how it was NOT THAT SWEET (great for serving with a mea..." See morel). I wishied it was sweeter as I served it as a dessert. Pretty, festive, and I think for more than 9 servings. Will make again."
