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 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!
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.
Light, creamy, and smooth! A wonderful salad or a fantastic light dessert.
