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!

A few people have asked me to share more of my Aunt's 1935 cookbook. She used raspberry and black cherry Jello together and added canned drained fruit cocktail for family get togethers, mainly for the children.

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

Ingredients:

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.

To Robin's salad, I also add a small carton of Sour Cream. It makes a stand-up salad either way.

Don't forget you can use low or free fat everything for a diabetic salad.

I often change the fruits and jello for a different look and taste.

Always requested at home and pot lucks. Wonderful salad. Thanks Robin for sending it. I never had a good name for it so I called it pink stuff or orange stuff or yellow stuff. However pink stuff seemed to stick no matter the color.

I need a salad recipe containing lime jello, evaporated milk, crushed pineapple, and cottage cheese.

By Lynda8 from Prosperity, SC

August 30, 20090 found this helpful

1 lg. pkg. dry jello (any flavor)

1 8oz. carton coolwhip

1 8oz. container cottage cheese

1 can drained pineapple

Drain pineapple. Mix jello and cool whip until jello crystals are dizzolved, add cottage cheese and pineapple, mix well. (Top with marchino cherries and chopped nuts if desired .)Refrigerate at least 2 hours. I try to let mine sit over night.

If lg. box seems like to much jello you can substitute it for a small one.

You can also use sugar free jello fat free cottage cheese and cool whip. It tastes the same.

This recipe I got from my Mom.

Way back in the 50s my mother made a salad with orange jello and grated carrots and maybe some kind of fruit, possibly crushed pineapple. Does anyone remember this concoction? Have a recipe? There may have been other things in it. Thanks.

My Mother made this also. It was called Sunshine salad. It is very simple: use one small pk of orange jello, one small can of crushed pineapple and 3-4 shredded carrots. Make jello according to directions, using only 1 and 3/4 cup of water, as the pineapple has at least 1/4 cup of juice, add the pineapple and carrots and chill until set. My mother used an 8x11 casserole dish and she cut it in squares to serve.

Combine the dry Jello and Cool Whip together. Blend by hand until the Jello looks dissolved and well mixed. Add the cottage cheese, fruit cocktail and pineapple. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Dissolve cherry, orange and black raspberry gelatin separately, using 1 1/2 cups hot water to each package. Mold each in a shallow square pan. Let set until solid.

Boil gelatin, juice, and water together for 1 minute. Cool, but do not congeal. Add cottage cheese, marshmallows, and Cool Whip or whipped cream.

Dissolve gelatin in water until syrupy and add next 3 ingredients. Put in flat, large Pyrex-style pan. Set until firm. For second layer, cook last ingredients and let cool.
