This recipe for Lemon-Lime Jello Salad has been in my family for many years. My Memaw got the recipe from her cousin who always used to make it for company. When I was visiting Memaw on the Saturday before Easter, she had the recipe out on her side table, but she was sad because she didn’t have the ingredients to make it.
See how well worn the recipe is? Don’t you love the old fashioned handwriting? I love how it says “Method” for the directions.
I decided to surprise Memaw with this salad this past Sunday. She loved it!
Lemon-Lime Jello Salad
- 1 box lemon jello
- 1 box lime jello
- 1 cup hot water
- 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups cold water
- 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (I didn’t say it was a healthy salad!)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 – 1 cup chopped nuts
In a large bowl mix both packages of jello with hot water, stir well. Beat in softened cream cheese (at low speed!). Add cold water and stir. Add pineapple, sweetened condensed milk and mayonnaise, mix well. Sprinkle nuts on top and chill.
