This salad is a MUST at our holiday table...maybe it will be at yours too! To speed the jelly stage along, I place the bowl in the freezer, but watch it closely. If it goes past the jelly stage, put it in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it. This is GREAT for potlucks too!
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 small lime Jell-O gelatin

- 1 cup drained pineapple juice

- 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip

This is the same recipe my mom made for holidays. I still make it to this day. Love it.
