This colorful holiday salad is a tart, crunchy favorite. The recipe will take several hours, as the gelatin must set. Substitute frozen whipped topping for whipped cream, if desired.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (6 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
- 20 ounces diced pimento peppers, drained
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup heavy cream
In a small bowl, dissolve the lime flavored gelatin in hot water. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, pineapple, pimento peppers, celery and pecans. Fold in the gelatin. Chill in the refrigerator 1 hour, or until thickened but not firm.
Whip the heavy cream in a small bowl until thickened. Fold into the gelatin mixture. Refrigerate 3 hours, or until firmly gelled.
