A tangy pineapple and peach flavored gelatin salad. I didn't tell anyone it had buttermilk until they ate it. Everyone wanted the recipe!

This is my new fave gelatin recipe because it's so easy to prepare pretty to look at and delicious! I used raspberry Jello and powdered reconstituted buttermilk and it was still great. A quick tip--you don't need to cool completely/let it set up in between additions. Cook the pineapple add the Jello and you can immediately add the buttermilk. As soon as it's cool enough to not melt the Cool Whip you can put it all together. I put it in a small/med oiled mold which was a mistake--this makes enough for a 13"x9" pan. However the mold looked great! All in all this is a great recipe thanks for sharing it! Read More

I liked the flavor, but it looks like....well, I won't name it, so it didn't go over well with my family. Guess I'll just have to eat the rest of it myself! If you don't happen to have buttermilk on hand, you can "make" buttermilk by adding one tablespoon of white vinegar to each cup of milk required----let it sit for a few minutes before adding to your recipe.

Unbelievably easy to make. Light and fluffy yet molded nicely. I used Raspberry-Cranberry jello instead of peach. I also used Fat Free whipped topping to cut calories. Personally I do not like buttermilk but there is not even a hint of the taste in this salad. Will use this recipe a lot in the future. Thank you Deb for sharing. Read More

Deb Thanks so much for contributing this recipe. I used to make this years ago and couldn't find my old recipe. It is EXCELLENT! Don't tell the family it is made with buttermilk and they'll never ever know! Happy Holidays! Read More

My husband saw this recipe and said no way would he eat anything with buttermilk in it. But I went ahead and made it for a family dinner and didn't tell anyone else what was in it and they gobbled it up. Very good and very easy. I hate buttermilk myself but thought I would give this a try and glad I did. But like everyone else says don't tell anyone what's in it or they won't eat it. I did talk my husband into tasting it and he admitted it was very good. Read More

I made this for Mother's Day dinner. My husband said it was the best jello salad he has ever eaten. The rest of the family raved and wanted the recipe. No one could believe there was buttermilk in the recipe. This is a keeper. Read More

This is a wonderful tangy refreshing recipe. My daughter hates Jello and would never have anything to do with a recipe with buttermilk in its name but I gave her a taste of this salad and she loves it. Read More
