This is a delicious Jello dessert with a couple of surprises in it. It is sometimes called a salad, but as you'll see, it's really an interesting dessert with an awesome flavor.
Mix sugar and pineapple in small saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring. Remove from heat. Set aside and allow to cool.
Add 1 cup boiling water to lemon Jello and stir to dissolve. Stir in pineapple-sugar mixture. Allow to thoroughly cool. Stir in shredded cheese and chopped pecans. Refrigerate. Allow to congeal slightly, then stir in Cool Whip. Refrigerate 4-6 hours or until ready to serve.
This can be really dressed up for a party by adding a swirl of whipped cream to the top of each serving. Add a maraschino cherry and a mint leaf or two.

Oh, boy! This is very different. I'm trying to imagine the taste of cheese and pecans with Lemon Jello and pineapple. Will have to try it to see how everyone likes it. A very interesting and different
recipe for sure.
Does this salad/dessert set up firm enough to
unmold onto a plate for instance? It sure does
sound good. I'm always looking for something
a little unusual to share with my girls.
