I've been making this recipe for years as well, one of the tricks is that you have to blend the cream cheese and pears for a very long time. It should be totally smooth. I have always used lime jello and I use dream whip instead of frozen whipped topping. It disappears quickly every timey.

6 people tried it, 6 of us did NOT like it at all! Didn't really taste much like pear, darned if any of us could figure out what the fuss is about!

I make this with strawberries and strawberry jello. My husband doesn't like pears so this is perfect for us! I have had the pears and nuts and it is great! I'd reccomend using any kind of fruit and jello to make it your own!

This is pretty yummy! My sister in law made this recipe and brought it to a family dinner and everyone in the family has been asking for this jello every family dinner since! There are never left overs because it goes so quickly! Now, when we plan family dinners, someone asks, "So who is making the green jello?" It's light and creamy, like a dessert jello. My family loves it!

This is a great recipe although the picture of the green salad has absolutely nothing to do with this recipe.

Have loved this recipe for years. Try it with lime jello and it is even better. Nice frosty green color. Marvelous taste.

After reading this recipe I printed it out and decided that I would make it within the week. After I made it, I was quite disappointed. It was 'okay', but definitely not something I'd prepare for guests, or take to a potluck hoping that everyone would love it, etc.The fact is that there's nothing very striking or impressive about it. I would prefer some zip, some sparkle, some zing. This salad could almost be called bland. I won't be making it again.

I've been making this for a couple of years now and it's always a big hit with my family. The texture is so satisfying and the flavor is divine. Take this geletan salad to a party and watch it disappear.
