Lime Salad Supreme












Barb in OKC requested my other lime Jell-O salad recipe in the 11/30 newsletter. WE have had this at family events for almost 50 years! My sister sometimes uses lemon Jell-O and I am sure you could easily use other flavors, if you don't like lime. You can add maraschino cherries for the red green effect we associate with Christmas. My husband works for the FAA and will be back in OKC for more training in the spring. It has become his second home since joining the FAA 7 years ago.

Lime Salad Supreme

1 cup canned crushed pineapple, drained, liquid reserved
Hot water
3 ounces lime gelatin
10 large marshmallows
1 cup cottage cheese, drained
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
1 cup light frozen dessert topping- Cool Whip or other brand
maraschino cherries- optional

Add enough hot water to reserved pineapple juice to make a total of 1-1/2 cups. Heat in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved.

Add marshmallows and stir until dissolved. Chill until mixture just begins to set. Stir in pineapple, cottage cheese and nuts. Chill until partially set.

Fold in whipped topping. Pour into mold or a pretty serving boll, and chill until set. If using a mold, Unmold to serve. Note: If using maraschino cherries, arrange them in the bottom of your mold, so that they are on top, when you unmold the salad. If just using a pretty bowl, add the cherries to the top, when the salad is almost set.
