Ingredients:

Directions:

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.

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. It's so good, it really does not need a topping.

Total Time: 30 minutes to prepare and 3-4 hours to congeal.

Yield: 9-12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 15 oz. cans fruit cocktail
  • 1 large box (6 oz.) Cherry Jell-O

Steps:

  1. Drain fruit cocktail and save the juice. Add 2 cups of boiling water to Jell-O and stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add 1 cup of fruit cocktail juice and 3/4 cup cold water. Stir well.
  2. Cool Jell-O until slightly congealed. I use a quick method by placing the Jell-O in a medium mixing bowl and then placing the bowl into a large mixing bowl with ice and water. It takes 10-15 minutes for a soft congeal. I test it by putting a piece of fruit cocktail in the Jell-O and if it does not float, it is ready to add the remainder of fruit cocktail.
  3. Add fruit cocktail and pour into 2 quart dish. Chill 3-4 hours or until firm.

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.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Prepare Jello according to package directions. Add the pineapple, bananas, nuts, and cherries. When it is starting to gel, mix well and chill in a serving dish.

Prepare Dream Whip as directed on package.

In a medium size saucepan, mix pineapple juice reserved from can, the egg, sugar, and flour, and cook like a pudding, on medium low heat, stirring often, until it thickens like a pudding.

Cool, and then combine with the Dream Whip. Spread this on top of the chilled Jello salad.

The topping makes the salad really special.

I am looking for a light, refreshing, sweet two layer lime Jello mold with a cream top and a clear bottom. It consists of what I remember cream cheese, pineapple, nuts, and ginger ale or 7Up. Can you help me locate recipe?

Well those ingredients make it sound refreshing but I could not find a recipe quite like that but here is one very similar. I feel sure some of ThriftyFun's great cooks will have better suggestions.

My mom still makes this style dessert every Thanksgiving but she uses cranberries and pineapple and no nuts (hubby allergy) and she uses one of the red jellos because of allergies to whatever is in the lime one. She does it by memory so that isn't helpful because her handfuls and such won't help.

Here are two that sound like what she does---the first one instead of pears use 16 ounce can of pineapple.

The second one is for when you are out of soda:

How do I make Jello fruit salad using these ingredients: raspberry jello, pineapple chunks, cherries, nuts, and whipped cream?

I think I read something about not adding pineapple or it won't set up? You can prepare the jello, then when it's about half set, stir in the chopped nuts and cherries. When it's firm, serve in a bowl and top with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Don't use fresh pineapple. Add the canned pineapple and other ingredients and chill a few hours.
