Mom’s Holiday Jello Salad

Yes, I am running a little thin but I thought this one was entertaining. I found this recipe among my mother’s stuff. I remember it barely. You can certainly attempt to make it but I present it as much as a recipe as a remembrance.


  • 1 Box Lime Jello
  • 1/2 Cup Hot Water
  • 1 Cup Crushed Pineapple
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Packages Regular Cream Cheese
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil (listed as salad dressing in the original recipe)
  • 3 Tablespoons Pimentos
  • 1 Teaspoon Pimento Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Nuts (pecans or walnuts)
  • 1 Cup Celery


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stand or Hand Mixer
  1. Place jello in bowl and pour over boiling water. Let combine.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend.
