I was so happy to come across this recipe. I loved this salad as a child and teen and still love it today. We didn't always use the nuts and sometimes replaced the the whipping cream with Dream Whip. Thanks for posting. I'd almost forgotten about this wonderful treat.

Yep! This is the one I`ve been looking for. I haven`t made it for a long time & couldn`t find my original recipe. I`d had it for many years. I whip the jello/marshmallow mixture when the jello is almost set. It`s very good! Thanks for posting this recipe.

the recipe I have used for years did not call for melted marshmallows. I saw your recipe and decided to try it. Liked it a lot better than the one I have been making. Thanks
