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.

How to Make Jell-O Pear Salad


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Slice and serve over lettuce with your meal. Or just cut in squares and serve alone without lettuce.
  4. Note: You can also make this recipe in a Jell-O mold.
