This is basically a "dump" type salad in that all the ingredients are eventually mixed together.
Mix first 3 ingredients together well and chill. Cook rice until tender and cool. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add rice and crushed pineapple with juice. Drain fruit cocktail and add to rice/pineapple mixture. The first 3 combined ingredients can be mixed in last with the fresh fruit. Pour into bowl and let jell. The salad is topped with the whipped cream after it has started to jell

This is one of our favorite dishes to keep on hand in the refrigerator. There's always room for Jell-O. It can be used as a salad served with mayonnaise or cottage cheese or as a dessert served with whipped cream.
I don't know why they call Jello and fruit a salad. This is one of my favorites, though. I would call it a dessert, it is so good.
In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Cool for 10 minutes. Stir in pie filling and pineapple until blended. Transfer to a 9x13 inch dish.
This is a great, warm-weather salad. Very nice and cool on a hot day!
Love the orange sherbet in this!
This is the easiest to make at this hectic time of year, and uses simple ingredients. A favorite of everyone.

The combination of apricots, cream cheese and pineapple in this salad is so good!
Bring water to boil, add sugar and pineapple. Add lemon Jello. Chill until partially set. Take out of refrigerator and stir in cheese, pecans, and Cool Whip. Refrigerate.
Pour juice off pineapples and let stand in refrigerator. Mix Jell-o and let stand 1 hour in refrigerator. Mix all the other ingredients together and add to Jell-o.
The combination of strawberries, pineapple, and cream cheese make this salad great!
I love the peach pie filling and cream cheese in this salad.
I love the lemon pie filling in this recipe! And it really does make you think spring.
My mother made a lot of salads. Seldom was the time when there was not a salad in the refrigerator. This is another one of the salads that I grew up eating. Very good and cool, especially on a hot day!
