This lime jello salad is a great recipe my mom made every year for Thanksgiving making it a family tradition for us — we just gobble it up! It can be made a day or two ahead of time if you like. It looks just beautiful in a glass or crystal bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 (6 ounce) package lime flavored Jell-O® mix

  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained with juice reserved

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Combine boiling water and gelatin mix in a large bowl; stir until dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Refrigerate until thickened but not set, about 1 hour.

  2. Meanwhile, place crushed pineapple and remaining juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.

  3. Blend softened cream cheese and prepared gelatin until smooth. Mix in cooled pineapple.

  4. Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into gelatin mixture. Fold in chopped nuts. Pour into a pretty glass bowl, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until set.

Tips

Chopped walnuts can be substituted for chopped pecans.
