Retro Recipe-Marshmallow & Lime Gelatin Salad

Marshmallow and Line Gelatin ( aka jello) Salad...
anything with jello and marshmallows spells retro to me!

This recipe is from Allrecipes.com... a fabulous resource, for, well, all recipes.

  • 7 fluid ounces lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lime flavored gelatin mix
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  1. In a saucepan, combine the carbonated beverage and marshmallows. Stir over medium heat until marshmallows melt. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Add the gelatin and cream cheese and mix until gelatin is dissolved.
  3. Add the pineapple and juice, pecans, mayonnaise and whipped topping. Mix well and pour into a 7x11 inch dish and chill until set.
Seems simple enough... perhaps if your feeling adventurous you can try it out this weekend!
