Pina Colada Molded Salad
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
Made this for my family for Easter according to the recipe. They said it was okay, but didn't have much flavor. They were not interested in me making it again.
This is a delicious salad or [as I served it] dessert. I forgot to buy lemon-lime soda, so I made up an equivalent amount of lemonade with a powdered mix and added some lime juice to it. I also left out the macadamia nuts. I filled the center with a mixture of pineapple tidbits and cubed mangoes. I took this to a potluck and it went over very well.
I made this salad exactly as the recipe stated and it was the nicest salad that I have ever made. It came out of the mold perfectly and the taste was wonderful. I filled the middle with cool whip and added mandarin oranges for color. I will make this many times more.
I love Pineapple & Coconut Cream! This recipe is a BIG TICK for me! Thanks ??
Great recipe, but I will use lemon gelatin and the juice from the pineapple can.
This can also be made with lemon jello rather than the unflavored (or sugar free lemon jello to save a few calories). It saves some time and effort that way. Just dissolve the jello, using the juice if you wish, as you would for any gelatin salad and then continue with step two.
Karway 44 very clever ideas will use them this weekend when I make this for a party. Thanks
Very blah tasting even after adding extra coconut flavoring. Maybe a pineapple gelatin would help rather than an unflavored gelatin, or a flavored yogurt would add taste.
I took this salad to an office potluck, although I did not use a mold, and it was a hit, with many people asking for the recipe. Now I plan to take the salad to a retirement party for the judge I worked for--so glad the recipe was easy to retrieve online! Pina Colada is a favorite flavor of mine and this salad is so good!
I had this at a Christmas brunch and at first people were passing it by. But once someone tasted it and raved about it, it was a huge hit. My whole family loved it.
