Cooking with Meme

Since I posted a recipe from Darin and so many liked it, I figured I would post one from my grandmother. This is a side dish that we always had at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners and our family really enjoyed it. It may not sound like a side dish - Darin thought it was a dessert - but rest assured that we served it with the meal - not after. For the dish, my grandmother had a special mold she used but you can use a bundt pan, bowl or jello mold.

Lime Salad aka Green Salad


2 small boxes/1 Family sized box Lime JELLO
(Use JELLO Brand only!)
1 #2 Can crushed pineapple (not drained)
1 pint Vanilla Ice Cream
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Dissolve the jello in boiling water. Add the ice cream and stir until dissolved. Add the pineapple (fruit AND juice - do not drain!) and the nuts (you can leave the nuts out if desired). Chill until firm. We make this the night before and let it chill overnight as it takes longer to firm up than plain jello would.
