"A tangy pineapple and peach flavored gelatin salad. I didn't tell anyone it had buttermilk until they ate it. Everyone wanted the recipe!" — Deb

1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, with juice
1 (6 ounce) package
apricot or peach flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
Unbelievably easy to make. Light and fluffy, yet molded nicely. I used Raspberry-Cranberry jello instead of peach. I also used Fat Free whipped topping to cut calories. Personally, I do not like buttermilk, but there is not even a hint of the taste in this salad. Will use this recipe a lot in the future. Thank you, Deb, for sharing.
I liked the flavor, but it looks like....well, I won't name it, so it didn't go over well with my family. Guess I'll just have to eat the rest of it myself! If you don't happen to have buttermilk on hand, you can "make" buttermilk by adding one tablespoon of white vinegar to each cup of milk required----let it sit for a few minutes before adding to your recipe.
This is my new fave gelatin recipe because it's so easy to prepare, pretty to look at and delicious! I used raspberry Jello and powdered reconstituted buttermilk and it was still great.
A quick tip--you don't need to cool completely/let it set up in between additions. Cook the pineapple, add the Jello, and you can immediately add the buttermilk. As soon as it's cool enough to not melt the Cool Whip you can put it all together. I put it in a small/med oiled mold which was a mistake--this makes enough for a 13"x9" pan. However, the mold looked great!
All in all, this is a great recipe, thanks for sharing it!
Deb, Thanks so much for contributing this recipe. I used to make this years ago and couldn't find my old recipe. It is EXCELLENT! Don't tell the family it is made with buttermilk and they'll never, ever know! Happy Holidays!
I make this all the time, I add 1/2 C chopped pecans to the mixture and then chill.
My husband saw this recipe and said no way would he eat anything with buttermilk in it. But I went ahead and made it for a family dinner and didn't tell anyone else what was in it and they gobbled it up. Very good and very easy. I hate buttermilk myself but thought I would give this a try and glad I did. But like everyone else says, don't tell anyone what's in it or they won't eat it. I did talk my husband into tasting it and he admitted it was very good.
I made this for Mother's Day dinner. My husband said it was the best jello salad he has ever eaten.
The rest of the family raved and wanted the recipe. No one could believe there was buttermilk in the recipe. This is a keeper.
loved this! I used sugar free cherry jello and fat free cool whip, turned out great. My sister and I almost ate it all ourselves!
