Maybe I'm just not a jello mold fan but I didn't like this at all and neither did ANY of the 10 guests over for Easter. Half of them wouldn't even try it based on the looks alone. Read More

This is one of my favorite jello salads for holidays. Everyone loves it and I never have left overs. I have also substituted strawberries and strawberry jello as well as peaches and peach jello with wonderfully light and creamy results but I think pear lime is the overall favorite! Read More

Thanks Grace this one is a winner. Attractive easy to make festive and delicious! I used a ring gelatin mold and decorated the platter with fresh whole strawberries. Used regular Cool Whip. Next time will try lite Cool Whip to make it a little less decadent. Recipe can easily serve 10-12 without skimping on portion size. Don't expect leftovers! Read More

Very refreshing! I loved the texture and it was very easy to make. This will be a repeat recipe for sure! I think it would also be great with different flavors of jello as well such as cherry or orange or even strawberry. Read More
