I am looking for a recipe that my mother in law made. It had (I think) lime Jello, nuts, cream cheese, and pineapple and she would call it green salad. It was wonderful and she would put it in a mold with the cherries on top. It was always a holiday tradition. Please help, my daughter who is now in college wishes she had some of her granny's green salad. Granny has since passed away.

Jello "Green Salad" Recipe

I think I have the salad recipe that you are looking for and my son calls it green salad as well, and it's his favorite too.

This is how I fix mine. Use 1 can of 7-Up, heated on stove in medium pot, then add 10 to 12 large, marshmallows until melted. Next, add 1can crushed pineapple,1 pkg.cream cheese, and 1 small pkg lime Jello. Mix until all ingredients are mixed well. Pour into a mold or glass dish, let set a few minutes, then add 1/2 bowl of cool whip and 2tbs. mayo.

You may also add nuts or cherries at this time if you like. Then put it in fridge to set.
Sometimes I add cherries on top of mine after it has set. I use red and green cherries for Christmas.
Hope this is what you are looking for.

Jello "Green Salad" Recipe

The one the cafeterias in TX makes has only lime Jello, a small can crushed pineapple, 1/2 pt. small curd cottage cheese, and 1/2 C. finely chopped pecans (that's PE-CAHNS, NOT PEE-CANS! lol) all turned in together then chilled, and nothing else. It's simple and great tasting, a favorite of all guests. The cottage cheese provides the creamy color, the Jello and pineapple gives tartness/sugar/flavor, and the nuts the crunch. There's no celery, Cool Whip, cherries, or 7-Up in ours. God bless and enjoy. : ) (11/13/2006)

My mom always used chopped walnuts. I am allergic to nuts so I now omit them from my recipe.

We always had this during the holidays, it was always a special treat. (11/14/2006)
