Mother's Lime Gelatin Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 (3oz) package lime Jello
1 (3oz) package lemon Jello
2 Cups boiling water
1 Cup pineapple juice
1/3 Cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
1 Cup evaporated milk, partially frozen [I substituted cool-whip]
1 Cup sieved cottage cheese
1/4 Cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Cup canned crushed pineapple
1 Cup chopped pecans (optional)
Dissolve lime and lemon jello in boiling water. Mix in pineapple and lemon juices, salt, and horseradish. Chill until the consistency of an unbeaten egg - about 40 minutes.
Whip evaporated milk until fluffy (or skip this part and use cool whip) and beat into jello mixture. Blend in cottage cheese and mayo, then fold in pineapple and pecans.
Pour into 3 qt ring mold and chill for 4 hours. Unmold on lettuce leaves and serve.
