Green Stuff

Submitted by Starscr292

I've heard this gelatin recipe called Seafoam Salad or Lime Velvet Salad, but I prefer my daughter's appellation of Green Stuff.  It can be made in many different ways some of which include marshmallows, mayonnaise or cottage cheese.  We prefer this one.

 

1 large box of lime gelatin
2 c. boiling water

1 (20 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, undrained

1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

1 pt. whipping cream

1/2 c. chopped celery

1/2 c. chopped pecans

 

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water.  Refrigerate until syrupy, about 30 to 45 minutes.  Blend together pineapple, celery, nuts, and cream cheese.  Whip cream to soft peaks.  Using a mixer, combine cooled gelatin and pineapple/cream cheese mixture.  Fold in whipped cream.  Pour into 11x13" Tupperware dish or glass baking dish.  Refrigerate until set or overnight.
