    Question: Lime Jello Salad Recipe

    For as far back as I can remember my gram made a Jello salad for one of our Christmas dinner desserts. She passed away around a year and a half ago and needless to say last Christmas just wasn't the same. I want to take over for her and start making her Jello salad for our family every Christmas, but the problem is I don't have her recipe.

    I know the the ingredients she used, but I don't know how to put it all together. I know she used: a large box of lime Jello, a large can of fruit cocktail, 2 8 oz packs of Philadelphia cream cheese, and 2 pints of whipping cream (or heavy whipping cream, I'm not sure).

    Does anyone know of a Jello salad recipe that calls for those ingredients? Or does anyone know how I should put those items items together to actually make the Jello salad? Any tips or ideas will be gratefully appreciated!

    Thank You, Merry Christmas!

    Lemon Jell-O Salad

    By Ann Winberg 306 239

    A refreshing not too sweet salad with crunch, one of my favorites!

    Ingredients:

    • I small box lemon Jell-O
    • 1 small pkg. cream cheese softened
    • 2 small cans mandarin oranges
    • ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
    • ½ cup chopped celery

    Directions:

    Bring the juice from the mandarin oranges and enough water to make one cup to a boil. Mix with Jell-O. Add softened cream cheese and mix until dissolved; let set until slightly jelled. Add the rest of the ingredients. Of course you may substitute other flavors and fruits, but this is a favorite of mine.

    Question: Recipe for Jello "Perfection Salad"

    By Deborah Price 8 4

    I am looking for a Jello salad recipe that we used to call Perfection Salad. It probably goes back to at least the 50's. This is made with lime Jell-O, carrots, celery and cabbage. There is some type of mayonnaise-based dressing that is served with it. All of the similar recipes I have found have either pineapple, cream cheese or green olives. My recipe did not have any of those.

    This calls for ingredients other than those listed, but usually they can be substituted for ingredients you like. There wouldn't be much difference in using lime gelatin instead of the lemon or leaving the radishes out. As far as the dressing, that may have been an added touch. My mother used a dollop of plain mayonnaise as a dressing on gelatin.

    SPARKLING PERFECTION SALAD

    2 pkgs. lemon gelatin

    2 c. boiling water

    2 c. chilled ginger ale

    2 tbsp. lemon juice

    2 c. shredded cabbage

    1 c. shredded carrots

    1/2 c. thinly sliced radishes

    Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Cool. Stir in ginger ale and lemon juice and chill until partially set. Fold in vegetables. Chill until firm.

    Squeeze all of the pineapple juice out before adding the pineapple, otherwise your salad won't set up, and will be runny. I don't whip the cool whip up either, as that breaks down the firmness of the cool whip. Hope this helps.

    Recipe: Sour Cream Jello Salad

    By Roxanne 6 1

    This is a very good jello salad I like to use different types of jello depending on the time of year. Fantastic flavor

    Ingredients:

    • 2 large boxes Lemon Jello (I especially like to use different flavors depending on the time of year. You can use 2 different flavors of jello just be sure and mix them separately using 1/2 cup HOT water per box of jello.)
    • 1 Cup HOT Water
    • 1 pint sour cream
    • 2 oz. walnuts, chopped
    • 1 (20 oz.) can chunk pineapple, well drained
    • 10 oz. maraschino cherries, chopped, well drained

    Directions:

    Mix both boxes jello with 1 cup HOT water. Place in the refrigerator until almost completely set up. Whip the Jello up really good with a wire whisk. You want it to be airy and fluffy when you add the other ingredients. Add all other ingredients and stir up well. Cover with saran wrap over top. Set back in the refrigerator OVER NIGHT before serving.

    Servings: 12

    Tip: Doubling a Congealed (Jello) Salad

    When preparing a congealed salad recipe (using jello or gelatin), all ingredients can be doubled except: salt, vinegar, and lemon juice. For these use only 1 1/2 times the given amount, but no more, or your salad won't congeal.
