Because it can be made ahead, a gelatin salad like this one, brimming with fruit and nuts, is so convenient. This salad (another old standby from the cooking show I watched years ago) comes out of the mold easily and looks very attractive when served. -Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) lime gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and gelatin. Add water, stir until gelatin is dissolved. Refrigerate until thickened, about 1 hour, stirring frequently. Add mayonnaise; whisk until smooth. Stir in fruit and pecans. Pour into a 1-qt. mold that has been coated with cooking spray. Chill until firm. Unmold onto a serving platter.
