This is what I call Blender Pear Salad...only I don't like lime jello in it at all. I use raspberry jello 9 times out of 10 although you can use any kind you like.
This is a staple at all get togethers in my family.
I loved this and finished it off myself--which was a lot of jello because no one else would eat it. Go figure.
I love this recipe and make it at le4ast once a week. I love it with strawberry gelatin and also raspberry gelatin. Also tried it with orange gelatin and it tasted like an orangesicle. I like to add a handful or two of marshmallows, which need to be stirred in when the gelatin is getting firm, otherwise they stay at the top. Yum!
This is a great recipe that I've been making for years. The only thing I do differently is save the juice and add water to equal 1 cup and microwave it. I don't blend the pears in with the cream cheese. I cut up the pears and add them into the mold. It gives it more texture and is really very good!!
I use the fat version but I want to recommend it to everyone who loves a light dessert. It can be made with other flavors and other fruits and makes a wonderful "take to the cookout party" recipe. Everyone I have ever brought it to loves it. Beverly
This is so good. It is refreshing and light. I have made this several times. Great recipe.
I have been making this for 37 years and my family knows it as Seafoam Salad. My grandchildren love it as we all do! It shows up at most family gatherings!
Light, creamy, and smooth! A wonderful salad or a fantastic light dessert.

This creamy, tangy salad has a delicious crunch from the pecans.
