Mother always had a way of making every dish she served just a little more special. A good example is this fluffy salad. It's both fruity and refreshing. -Linda McGinty, Parma, Ohio

Great recipe! I made mine the way the other poster did (sugar free jello and pears along with fat free cool whip and cream cheese. Tasted fantastic and no one knew they were eating healthier.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2012

This recipe is one of my family's favorites. I'd lost it, along with some issues of Taste of Home, when we moved to a different city. My oldest son reminded me of it when his birthday came around, but we couldn't even remember the name of it! Found it on this website & we've been enjoying it again for 6 yrs. The only thing I've modified is beating the jello with my electric mixer on low speed after adding the cream cheese & using sugar-free jello & fat-free cream cheese & Cool Whip. I also use pears packed in juice. Absolutely wonderful!
