Pineapple Gelatin Salad

Pineapple Gelatin Salad

"My family enjoys this lovely layered salad in the summer with grilled hamburgers. Although I haven't used the recipe long, it's quickly become a favorite. A good friend shared it with me, and every time I make it, I think of her. -Susan Kirby, Tipton, Indiana"

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Dissolve gelatin in water; add pineapple. Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. dish; chill until almost set, about 45 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and whipped topping until smooth. Carefully spread over gelatin; chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, lemon juice, water, flour, egg yolks and reserved pineapple juice; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute or until thickened. Cool. Carefully spread over cream cheese layer. Chill for at least 1 hour.

It was delicious! I normally am not a big fan of jello, but my husband loves it. Only change I made was non-fat cool whip and cream cheese. I will make it lots more!
