Lime Jello Salad Recipe?

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 The ingredients sound really similar to the one your gran made but looks like it could use some tweaking. Hope this helps!

Calamity Salad

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.
Drain fruit.
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
