  • 2 cups crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons gelatin
  • 1 cup cream (whipped)
  • 1/2 cup nut meats


Heat pineapple and lemon juice and sugar to the point where it will be hot enough to dissolve the gelatin that has been soaked in a small amount of cold water. Let the mixture cool, when it begins to set, add cheese, chopped nuts and whipped cream. Serve on lettuce leaf.

  • 1 can pineapple
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 cup shredded Velveeta Cheese
  • 1 cup shipping cream (whipped)

  • 1 tsp. finely chopped onion
  • 1 green bell pepper (finely diced)
  • 3 stalks celery (finely diced)
  • Mayonnaise


Heat pineapple and sugar to a boil. Soften gelatin in cold water. Add to pineapple mixture. Cool until slightly thickened. Stir occasionally. Add cheese. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into 6 cup mold or layer pan. Chill overnight. Spread mixture of onion, green pepper, celery and salad dressing over top. I prefer to use layer pan. When salad is set, I layer mayonnaise, then diced onion, pepper, celery, a few finely chopped celery leaves and shredded cheddar cheese. Delicious!
