Crunchy walnuts, plump marshmallows and tangy pineapple dot this creamy lime salad. It's a refreshing side dish for a family meal or a yummy addition to a potluck dinner. -Susan Ormond, Jamestown, North Carolina

"I have read all the great reviews so I tried this. I was quite disappointed. It was very dry. I'm not sure what I did but I'm going to try it one more time to see. The flavor was great I love the cream cheese with the nuts. I wish it was more creamy :("

"This is a fantastic recipe. easy to follow, light and fluffy, and best of all it tastes great! The nuts and cream cheese add just the right balance to all the fluffiness. Definitely a keeper!"

"I've made this recipe several times & am always left with an empty dish (darn). I use light cream cheese, sugar free jello & unsweetened pineapple. I omit the walnuts as I don't care for them (cook's perogative). I was wondering how this would work with lemon jello?"

"I have made this recipe a couple times a month for several years. I always use 20 oz. of pineapple though, sugar-free jello, reduced-fat cream cheese & lite whipped topping. The whole family loves it."
