Lime Jello Salad - Aka 'the Green Stuff'

READY IN: 6hrs 30mins
Recipe by lazyme

My step-mom first served this salad and it has become a family tradition since. I always make it for holiday dinners and one year I decided to try new things as I was a little tired and bored with the regulars. I didn't make this one year, and my grown son told me that I should not mess with tradition - this salad WAS the holidays. My kids all call this 'the green stuff'. ZWT West (Hawaiian pineapple).

I didn't make this for any holiday BUT I might well be adding it to the Christmas menu. I don't know that I've ever used cream cheese in a jello salad before but I will surely be making this again just as written. So yummy. Made for For: Your Consideration.
