I eliminated the white sugar, used sugar-free jello and a juice-based soda (no sugar added), and it turned out great! It has a wonderful taste and texture, and I'm making it again today :o)!

I tried this recipe for St. Patty's Day because of it's green color. It fit perfectly in my 4cup four leaf clover gelatin mold. I used sugar free gelatin mix and light cream cheese, but not a diet lemo-lime beverage. No blarney, everyone loved this. I'm sure I will continue to use it every year for our March 17th dinner.

I made it for Thanksgiving and it held up and was delicious! Most of my family won't eat jello salad, but they like this one. It was a nice change of pace from stawberry and cherry jello salads. It people don't like nuts you can take them out, but I liked the texture. It is a keeper.

MYSTERY SOLVED!(I think). I simply do not see the purpose of one teaspoon of sugar in this recipe. What difference could it make? I used one tsp. UNFLAVORED GELATIN to improve the set-up. Eureka! This was the perfect firmness and kept its shape in a mold. Flavorwise, this is mildly flavored, not overly sweet or tangy, and has a bit of fizz sensation. The cream cheese does stay slightly chunky (even though I mixed it, with the CRUSHED pineapple, in my Kitchenaid) but is fine. I was extremely skeptical of adding nuts, but feel they added greatly to the flavor and texture. Last tip: BE CERTAIN that the gelatin is COMPLETELY dissolved in the hot water-- you should not hear or see ANY grains or it will not set up. To speed set-up I did put this in my freezer for one hour and then refrigerated another two. It worked perfectly. The End :)

I made this for Mother's Day and it was gone in minutes. This is an awesome recipe, loved the fizz in your mouth when you ate it. I have been asked to make this for Father's Day now... let's see how long it lasts this time!!

It was just like what my mom used to make for holidays.
