THIS RECIPE IS DELICIOUS!! I have been searching for a recipe like my grandmother in-law's lime fluff and it've got to say this is as close as it gets! I made this for a picnic, but my 5 year old son is totally anti-green anything. So, I called it a Shrek marshmallow caserole, and even he loved it. I stirred all the ingredients together and it came out wonderful, I didn't add the nuts just because i'm all about textures and I like the smoothness of it without. The only thing I would change about this recipe in the driections I would have stated to FOLD in the whipped topping, not stir. Otherwise you loose alot ot the fluffyness of the whipped topping of which adds to the texture and fluff aspect of the "lime fluff". Other than that one minor change. this is deffinately a two spoons up!

I made this a few hours ago and it's still soupy! I followed the directions and ingredients exactly.What went wrong? I mixed the dry jello with the whip topping etc. Was that right? I'd appreciate it if the submitter could email me.

I made this recipe last week and substituted pears for the pineapple and my entire family loved it. It was the easist thing I have ever made. We will be making it again - often.

Delicious and easy. This was one of several side dishes I prepared with a ham dinner. Absolutely a great dish and something you can be proud to serve at home or any potluck.

Served this at a BBQ and it was a huge hit!

As is my usual habit, I added 2/3 cup chopped celery to this salad and omitted 4 ounces of the whipped topping. (I actually used stiffly beaten whip cream instead). Oh, I also omitted the nuts because of the unwanted fats. Everyone loved it. This will be a keeper with modifications at our house!Thanks Amy. Georgians have a winner in this one.

If you don't care for the taste of lime, make this with pistachio pudding instead. Omit the sour cream, and add shredded coconut. At Christmastime, garnish with maraschino cherries. One of my husband's favorite salads.

Concerning the recipe Lime Fluff, do you make the gelatin up first according to package directions?
