“Green Jello Salad”
Please forgive me, fellow Foodies. This was always a staple in our house growing up. I have only one sibling. My brother Bill was born November 27th so his birthday always fell on or about Thanksgiving. This was HIS favorite. It was usually made just for him (but somehow I managed to get my fill).
Don’t get me wrong. My brother has an amazing palate. In fact, the email I just received from him talks about the Sausage and Oyster Dressing he is making to bring to a friend’s for the holiday dinner.
If there is something akin to this on your holiday table, we hope that it will bring you happy memories as well.
1 1.4 oz box lime jello
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 small can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup boiling water
3 oz package cream cheese (why worry about the low fat kind……you’re already using whipping cream).
Empty dry jello powder into a mixing bowl.
Cut cream cheese into small chunks and place in same bowl.
Pour boiling water over the top.
Blend until cream cheese is melted a bit and jello is dissolved
Pour the container of whipping cream into the mixture.
Pour into 8X8 dish or your favorite mold and refrigerate until firm.
When well chilled, serve (remember this was the 50’s) on a lettuce leaf with a tiny dollop of mayonnaise and a maraschino cherry.
