  1. In a large bowl, stir together the orange gelatin and boiling water until the gelatin is dissolved. Whisk in the Neufchatel cheese and mayonnaise until well blended. The gelatin should be slightly thickened and cooled.
  2. Stir in the vinegar, carrot, pineapple, and fruit cocktail. Pour into a greased gelatin mold or serving bowl. Cover, and refrigerate until solid, about 4 hours.
  3. To unmold, dip the mold into a large bowl of warm water for a couple of minutes to loosen. Then invert onto a plate to serve.

This is a very different good salad. I followed the recipe amounts exactly but did use one 3 oz. sugar free jello and one 3 oz. regular. Also used the fruit cocktail that is sweetened with Splenda and pineapple in its own juice so calories were reduced. Tasted GREAT!

Good recipe but a little too sweet for me.

Fabulous & Refreshing! I changed this just a little, using mandarin orages instead of fruit coctail and cream cheese instead of N. cheese plus I used 1/4 cup more carrot. I messed up and used 2 cups of water to make the gelatin and it was still perfect. Try this, you WILL like it.

Made this salad for a dinner party tonight and everyone loved it. Made recipe as directed except used regular mayo. Excellent.

This was yummy. I also used sugar free jello, light cream cheese, celery,and mandarin oranges because this is what I had on hand instead of the other items. I've been trying different jello recipes here and finally found one I like.

I made this as a dessert and was quite happy with how it turned out. I didn't want to use fruit cocktail, so I added some extra carrot (I used 3 instead of one, next time I'll only use 2, it was a bit too much carrot). I used sugar free jello (2-0.32oz packages) and I only had an 8oz package of Neufchatel cheese, so I doubled the water and the mayo. Yum. I did forget to add the vinegar, and I think I'm glad that I did. I might try adding it next time. But I don't think that it needed anything else.

I wasn't sure about this recipe with the mayo and vinegar. It turned out great! I used the mandarin oranges suggested by another review. Took it to a family picnic and came home with an empty bowl. Enough said!! Thanks

I made this salad for Christmas and everyone loved it! I did use the sugar-free gelatin, tho. I will be making it again.
