A “must” at our family reunions is this easy make-ahead gelatin salad. Try decorating the top with maraschino cherries. The red and lime-green color is especially pretty for the holidays.

MY REVIEW

This is the best lime gelatin dish I've ever tasted! It is amazing that just a few simple ingredients can make something so delicious. I used low fat cream cheese and it was still good ..... even my son who doesn't like fruit ate some, and my husband had seconds! Very light and fluffy. I used an 8 x 8 square glass pan and it came out perfect.

This is a winner!! I took this to a family Christmas party and it was a hit. It is by far the best jello salad I have ever had.

Loved this one! Took it to a Church Covered Dish Dinner and it was a tremendous hit. Not one bite left to bring home. Will definitley be making this one again. Only thing I did differently is that I did not toat the pecans; don't care for them. It was great without that step as well.

Haven't tried this one but I was wondering if you could substitute Ricotta cheese for the cream cheese.
