Ingredients

  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) lime gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 quart lime sherbet
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Beat in sherbet until melted. Add whipped topping; beat well.
Pour into an 8-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. Unmold onto a serving platter. Yield: 10 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • To help gelatin slip seamlessly out of the mold, dip the mold in warm water for about 10 seconds before inverting it onto a serving platter.
  • This recipe can be made in a rainbow of colors and flavors. Try orange, raspberry or pineapple gelatin and matching sherbet.
  • To avoid a lopsided salad, be sure to store it on a level shelf in the refrigerator.

    "Great recipe! This was quick and easy to assemble and oh, so good! The possibilities and variations with this recipe are endless! I wasn't able to find lime sherbet so I used orange Jell-O and orange sherbet and folded in mandarin oranges. My family often request me to make this salad for "special occasion' dinners; it has become a family favorite."

    "Very tasty - love that it is easy to make & comes together quickly. A great side dish for any holiday meal. Next time I will try it with orange gelatin and sherbet & will add mandarin oranges."

    "Always a hit wherever I take it -- been making for YEARS! Try adding a can of crushed pineapple (instead of sherbet -- I might try both together though) and you do not need to worry about draining. Also, can add some mini-marshmallows -- be creative."

    "Very light smooth and creamy! I really liked it. I didn't use a mold. I just put it in a bowl and we dipped it out."

    "I have not made this yet, however my Mom did and it was excellent! I had to have the recipe so I can make it too!! (The only thing she did different is to use sugar-free gelatin and sugar-free whipped topping since we both need to watch our sugar.)"
