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.

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.

Ingredients:

Directions:

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.

Ad

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 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.

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.

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?
