I made it for Thanksgiving and it held up and was delicious! Most of my family won't eat jello salad but they like this one. It was a nice change of pace from stawberry and cherry jello salads. It people don't like nuts you can take them out but I liked the texture. It is a keeper. Read More

I eliminated the white sugar used sugar-free jello and a juice-based soda (no sugar added) and it turned out great! It has a wonderful taste and texture and I'm making it again today:o)! Read More

I tried this recipe for St. Patty's Day because of it's green color. It fit perfectly in my 4cup four leaf clover gelatin mold. I used sugar free gelatin mix and light cream cheese but not a diet lemo-lime beverage. No blarney everyone loved this. I'm sure I will continue to use it every year for our March 17th dinner.

MYSTERY SOLVED!(I think). I simply do not see the purpose of one teaspoon of sugar in this recipe. What difference could it make? I used one tsp. UNFLAVORED GELATIN to improve the set-up. Eureka! This was the perfect firmness and kept its shape in a mold. Flavorwise this is mildly flavored not overly sweet or tangy and has a bit of fizz sensation. The cream cheese does stay slightly chunky (even though I mixed it with the CRUSHED pineapple in my Kitchenaid) but is fine. I was extremely skeptical of adding nuts but feel they added greatly to the flavor and texture. Last tip: BE CERTAIN that the gelatin is COMPLETELY dissolved in the hot water-- you should not hear or see ANY grains or it will not set up. To speed set-up I did put this in my freezer for one hour and then refrigerated another two. It worked perfectly. The End:) Read More
