Jell-O Pear Salad

Betty Graves


This is my daughter in law's recipe. When we have our family gatherings I always ask her to bring this recipe. It is so good and the whole family enjoys it so much. It is also pretty to serve.

No-Cook or Other


1 can(s)
(29-32) can pears
1 oz
8 oz. cream cheese
1 oz
8 oz. cool whip
1 small
lime jell-o
chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat 1 cup of the pear juice that is in the can with pears to boiling. Remove from heat and add Jell-O; set aside. Place whole pears in the bottom of your dish. If you want to add nuts sprinkle them over pears.
In a mixer, mash cream cheese and Cool Whip together and then add Jell-O and pour over whole pears that you have lined in bottom of a pretty bowl. (I use my glass bowl that I would serve it in) Chill overnight.
Slice and serve over lettuce with your meal. Or just cut in squares and serve alone without lettuce.
Note: You can also make this recipe in a Jell-O mold.
