Lemon Jello Salad

 

small box lemon jello

3 ounces Cream Cheese - softened

reg size can of sweetened crushed pineapple

2/3 cup sugar

1 regular size container of Cool Whip

sm apple (I use a peeled red delicious) - diced

1 stalk celery (this is for the crunch / texture factor - you don't really taste it) - diced

sm amount of finely chopped walnuts (can leave out if you have a nut allergy)

 

In an 8 x 8 dish, spread the cream cheese and lemon jello around. (you will slowly pour the following hot mixture into the cream cheese and jello.) 

 

Boil sugar and crushed pineapple in small sauce pan till sugar is dissolved - approx 2 minutes.

 

Fold Cool Whip into hot mixture.

 

Slowly pour the hot mixture into the cream cheese and lemon jello mixture, being sure to mix and blend all ingredients together.

 

Mix in celery, apples and nuts.

 

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

 

This was my grandmother's recipe, and is now my father's and my favorite holiday treat!

Re: Signature Thanksgiving holiday dish?

I always make the entire dinner.  My guests fight over my bread filling/stuffing and gravy as well as my homemade pumpkin pies made from pumpkins from the market.

 

My BIL always asks me to save my gravy for him..all year long.  I think he drinks the stuff.

Although I make the whole meal, there is no specialty. It was enjoyable reading all the favorites others mentioned.

Pecan torte sounds good. I don't think I have ever had any.

I'm typically asked for cheesy potatoes or mini pumpkin cheesecakes.

Do you make your cornbread in muffin tins or an iron skillet?
