Gingered Lime Gelatin
This recipe calls for ginger ale in place of cold water, which gives the salad a "tingly" taste and heightens the ginger flavor.—Sandra McKenzie, Braham, Minnesota

- 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits
- 1 package (6 ounces) lime gelatin
- 1-1/2 cups boiling water

I did it with 2 small packages of sugar free jello and diet ginger ale. It was pretty good. I eat it for dessert with whipped cream on top.
