This salad appeared at EVERY holiday dinner/buffet/party we went to in December...every year.
2 small pkg. of lime
2 small pkg. of cherry Jello
1 small pkg. lemon Jello
8 oz cream cheese
20 oz crushed pineapple (drained...but save the Juice)
1 cup thawed cool whip
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup pineapple juice
Dissolve lime Jello in 2 cups of hot water. Add 2 cups of cold water. Pour into a 10″ x 13″ clear glass casserole dish Let sit in the fridge until almost firm**
Dissolve lemon Jello in 1 cup of hot water in a small saucepan on the stove. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from the heat. Add in pineapple juice and cream cheese and stir until cream cheese is melted and smooth in the mixture. Cool slightly then fold in the cool whip. Pour over lime Jello and let set until almost firm.
Dissolve cherry Jello in 2 cups of hot water then add 2 cups of cold water. Chill till slightly thickened, add drained pineapple, and stir. Pour over the rest of the Jello mixture.
If using a glass
casserole dish use the following sequence.. Green layer – then the lemon.. then
the Red layer
If using a large Jello mold reverse the order of the layers. .. Red layer first.. then the lemon layer.. then the Green layer.
If you let the layers set until completely firm this salad will slide apart when it is cut and served
