I tried this recipe for Christmas dinner and it was absolutely delicious - EVERYONE went back for seconds, even my husband who normally doesn't care for gelatin dishes.
Maybe I'm just not a jello mold fan, but I didn't like this at all and neither did ANY of the 10 guests over for Easter. Half of them wouldn't even try it based on the looks alone.
Thanks Grace, this one is a winner. Attractive, easy to make, festive and delicious! I used a ring gelatin mold and decorated the platter with fresh whole strawberries. Used regular Cool Whip. Next time will try lite Cool Whip to make it a little less decadent.
Recipe can easily serve 10-12 without skimping on portion size. Don't expect leftovers!
This is one of my favorite jello salads for holidays. Everyone loves it and I never have left overs. I have also substituted strawberries and strawberry jello, as well as peaches and peach jello with wonderfully light and creamy results but I think pear lime is the overall favorite!
This is EXCELLENT!! I found this recipr two years ago on this site and have made it for the past two Thanksgivings, as well as numerous other potlucks, and it always is gone quickly, and gets great compliments. Best of all, you can make it the day before and it's SO easy!
I was trying to find a recipe I could make for sugar free for my brother.
This one worked great. I used sugar free jello, the pears that are in
pear juice and I used real whipping cream sweetened with fructose.
Thank you for the recipe.

This was SOOOOO good! Creamy and sweet. I used sugar free jello, reduced fat cream cheese, and lite cool whip. My husband who can't stand anything "light" loved this!! WOW!
Probably would not have added the entire container of cool whip....3/4 would have been perfect.
