“An old fashioned Jello salad that is also great for a light dessert. I changed it a little from the original in the matter of adding a little zip to it with different & extra spice & subbing lime juice for the original lemon juice”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pears, reserving 3/4 cup of the syrup; coarsely chop pears and set aside.
  2. Dissolve jello in boiling water; add pear syrup and lime juice; measure 1 1/4 cups into an 8X4 loaf pan or a 4 cup gelatin mold- chill until set but not firm- about one hour.
  3. Meanwhile, slowly (to prevent lumps) blend remaining gelatin into the softened cream cheese; beat until smooth then blend in spices and chopped pears.
  4. Pour over set gelatin in refrigerator and let finish firming up in fridge, about four hours.
  5. Note- This can be made with pears in syrup; doing that makes it sweeter and more of a dessert dish which is how we prefer it here at my house.
