I have an obsession with Jello salads. I know, their fashionability went out about the same time as leg warmers and teased bangs, but show me a Jello salad at a potluck and I am a happy girl!
My sister invited me for supper last night and I decided I’d try a Jello salad for my contribution. I broke out my grandmother’s classic Tupperware Jello mold (what’s a salad without the mold)
I googled some recipes and tried a Jello/cream cheese/pineapple combo (really, how could that be bad?)
Unfortunately, my cream cheese hadn’t softened as much as I thought it had which became abundantly clear when I tried to blend it with the Jello. Despite my best efforts (and the resulting appearance of carnage with my too-small bowl and cherry Jello overspray) I ended up with junks of cream cheese in the salad.
I’m wondering if you have a classic Jello salad recipe?
