1 (6 ounce) package

1 (3 ounce) package
Neufchatel cheese, softened
apple cider vinegar
carrot, peeled and grated
1 (8 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, with juice

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 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.
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.
