I had no idea I would find this recipe here and it is a little different from the one we make. In my family it is always a tradition on Thanksgiving or Christmas. We make it with creamed cheese instead of mayo milk and cottage cheese. I never get tired of it but it's a good thing we only have it once or twice a year!!! Any way you make it it's GREAT!
My family makes this every thankgiving and sometimes christmas....we change it up a bit though. Instead of mayo and milk we use yogurt (either lime or lemon flavor) and we also use walnuts instead of pecans. Its delicious!
oh... my.... god. i cant stop saying it. i made some of this tonight, was a little iffy about the mayo but i put it in anyways, was a little worried about how it would turn out because it smelled really mayonnaisey when i went to put it in the fridge and seemed a little greasy around the edge of the bowl when i went to wipe the edge for a picture. im saving it for dessert tomorrow but i wanted to taste a little bit to see how it turned out.. and HOLY . this stuff is absolutely to die for. that little bit is about to turn into the whole bowl full, but i need to be strong. i did everything exactly how the instructions said, except i dont like pecans so i substituted those for sliced almonds and i added shredded coconut. nothing too drastic that would change the flavor much from the original recipe. its not how i remember the green jello salad being made when i was little (i think it was just pineapple, grapes, coconut and pecans mixed in the lime jello) but its good... much MUCH better than how i had it when i was growing up. definitely keeping this one for years and years.. and im going to share it with anyone that will take it. do NOT let the mayonnaise in it stop you from making this.
My family too has made this recipe for years we all love it and think Thanksgiving and Christmas require this salad. However we add chopped celery but never canned milk. How does that affect the salad?
I am so thrilled to see this recipe as it has been a family favorite for generations in our family as well. We always thought that our family was the only one that liked it as in-laws and others did not appreciate it even slightly! In our family we included if you can believe it a teaspoon or more of prepared horseradish! Gives it a kick and is completely bizarre to wrap your head around but it works. Ours also used walnuts from the family farm in Gridley CA. This recipe made me very nostalgic for wonderful holidays during my youth. THANKS!
I don't know what I did wrong but this was a disaster. I made it for a holiday meal at work. It never gelled. It stayed in a liquid form. I was mortified. The saving grace was that it tasted delicious.
