This recipe was given to me back in the 60's by a lady at my church when I lived in Michigan. Rosalie served it for holidays and at church social and card parties. Then she gave it to me to put in my cook book " Kitchen Chatter and Friends" book 2. So that all could have this recipe I post it here. She would serve it with this lemon jello salad on the side. This is so awesome.

    Jello Salad:Believe me this is awesome as a side with the shrimp salad. --- Dissolve jello in boiling water; stir in the cold water. Chill for about 1 1/2 hours; just until it jells a little.
  • This a great salad to serve with any fish or just on it's own as a side dish.
    Prepare the pudding with the milk;chill 5 minutes. Beat the cream cheese until creamy and add the pudding mixture and the partially set jello for about 2 minutes. Fold in remaining ingredients and pour into mold or bowl and chill until set.
  • This is great served with the lemon jello salad.
    Shrimp Salad: Combine all ingredients except shrimp until creamy; fold in shrimp and sprinkle top with a little dill. Serve on lettuce leaf with a side of the creamy lemon jello.
