Mix dry Jello with Cool Whip. Add rest of ingredients. Refrigerate
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.
This was just something I thought off while cleaning out the cabinet and turned out wonderful. It is a good way to get little ones and picky big ones to eat more vegetables.
Mix box of Jello into 1 cup of boiling water in 1 or 2 quart bowl.
Whisk in yogurt until blended. While that cools cut and chop other ingredients.
Stir in all other ingredients. Cover and chill.
You can pour in a square pan to chill and cut in squares and serve on a bed of lettuce or serve in a bowl with a dollop of whip cream for a dessert.
I have recently quit smoking and have lived on Jello and vegetables, which has helped tremendously. It has been almost a month and I am proud to say I am now a non smoker (and only gained 12 pounds)!

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.

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!
I was also looking for a lime jello recipe and found this one on allrecipes.com. The ingredients sound really similar to the one your gran made but looks like it could use some tweaking. Hope this helps!
Have you tried the website, Cooks.com Recipe search. You can find about any recipe there.
1 sm. pkg. lime Jello
1 (3 oz.) pkg. Philadelphia cream cheese, cut in 1/2" pieces
1 med. size can fruit salad
2 c. boiling water
48 mini marshmallows (opt)
1 c. whipping cream
1/4 c. chopped pecans (opt)
Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water. Stir in cream cheese, mix well. Cool mixture in refrigerator until it starts to congeal.
Whip cream and gently fold into lime cream cheese mixture.
Add fruit, marshmallows and nuts to mixture and refrigerate until it sets.
Serves 8 to 10.
NOTE: Many variations of this salad may be prepared. For example, marshmallows may be omitted, maraschino cherries may be substituted for fruit salad, nuts may be omitted or a different type used, but the basic Jello cheese whipping cream mixture must be adhered to for best result
I need a salad recipe containing lime jello, evaporated milk, crushed pineapple, and cottage cheese.

This was my Mother's recipe. She called it Pacific Lime Jello.
Dissolve 1 package (3 oz) Lime flavored Jello in 1 cup boiling water. Add juice from 1 - 9 oz can crushed pineapple. Chill until slightly thick. Fold in crushed pineapple, 1 cup creamed cottage cheese and 1/4 cup chopped nuts. Chill until firm. Serve on a slice of lettuce and top with whipped cream, if desired.
When I make this recipe, I usually double it and I omit the crushed nuts.
This recipe has 3 of your 4 items plus others (no evaporated milk)
1 can crushed pineapple (1 lb. 4 oz.)
1/2 Cup Lemon juice
2 pkgs. Lime Jell-O
1 Cup chopped nuts
2 tbsp. Grated lemon rind
2 Cups cottage cheese (1 lb.)
1 Cup chopped celery
2 tsp. prepared horseradish
1/2 tsp. salt
Drain syrup from pineapple into 4 cup measure. Add lemon juice and enough boiling water to make 3 cups of liquid. Add gelatin and stir until dissolved. Chill mixture until syrupy. Spoon about 1 1/2 cups syrupy gelatin into a medium sized bowl; foldin drained pineapple, nuts and grated lemon rind; pour into lightly greased mold. Chill unti firm and sticky on top. Keep remaining syrupy gelatin at room temperature.
When layer in mold is firm, beat syrupy gelatin until fluffy, blend in cottage cheese, celery, horseradish, and salt; spoon over layer in mold and chill until firm.
Unmold, garnish and serve with banana nut dressing.
Banana Nut Dressing
Blend 1/2 cup salad dressing (miracle whip), 1 mashed banana, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 3 tablespoons heavy cream, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a small bowl. Makes 1 cup.
1 pkg Lime jello
1 pkg lemon jello
1 1/2 C boiling water
Mix together to dissolve jello
add 1 t horseradish if desired
Add 1/2 c mayo or miracle whip
#2 can crushed pineapple, juice included
16 oz carton cottage cheese
1 c evaporated milk
1 c nutmeats
Interestingly enough Robin's Corner has a Lime Jello recipe in todays newsletter, too ;-)
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.

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.

Orange Carrot Salad Recipe
Ready in: 2-5 hrs
Difficulty: 3 (1=easiest :: hardest=5)
1 package Orange-flavored gelatin; 6oz size
2 cups Water; boiling
1 1/2 cup Water; cold
2 large Carrots; shredded
11 ounces Mandarin oranges; drained
15 1/2 ounces Crushed pineapple; undrained
1/2 cup Pecans; chopped
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water, and stir in cold water. Chill until partially set. Fold in carrots, oranges, pineapple, and chopped pecans into thickened gelatin. Spoon into an oiled 2 quart mold; chill until set. Unmold on lettuce, and garnish with carrot curls and pecan halves.
Looks like there are many many variations on this one.
Here are a few basic ones:
this one adds cream cheese & pinapple:
Or whipping cream & pineapple:
This is one from the '70's with cottage cheese:
This one has mayo included:
Or you can sift through the many posted here:
My mom made this and I make it all the time. I use a small (3 oz) jello, mix with 1 cup boiling water, then add a tray of ice cubes and stir until most are melted and you have 2 cups of jello. You'll throw away some small pieces of ice. Put it in a glass pan and add 1 (drained) can of pineapple (I prefer the tidbits, crushed is fine too) and 2 grated carrots. Mix and refrigerate, if you use ice it sets up quickly.
The ice lets you put the fruit and carrots in right away. If you don't use ice the stuff will float.
Serve with a dressing made of lemon juice or vinegar, sugar, and mayo. I use a scant 1/4 cup of lemon juice or vinegar, about 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup mayo. Taste and adjust to your liking.
This makes about 8 or 10 nice sized servings.
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.
When making green Jello salad, is the whipped cream whipped before adding? Also do I drain the pineapple? Thanks!
By Faye from White, GA
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.
I lost the Christmas recipe of my mother's souffle jello salad. It was made with lemon jello then, using an egg beater, you added mayonaise, let it set partially and folded in pineapple tidbits, maraschino cherries, and bananas. The it was placed in a mold until set. Does anyone have this recipe?
My mother made a sunshine (carrot jello salad). I have found that recipe, but she served it with a topping. Some of the ingredients were whipping cream, lemon juice, and zest. She cooked a flour mixture and then folded in the whipped cream and lemons. Dose anyone know of this recipe?

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