Hidden Pear Salad Recipe


Hidden Pear Salad

16 ounces canned pears, liquid drained and reserved
3 ounces lime gelatin powder
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 envelope whipped topping mix
lettuce leaves

In a saucepan, bring pear liquid to a boil. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool at room temperature until syrupy.

Meanwhile, puree pears in a blender.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and lemon juice until fluffy and smooth. Add the pureed pears and mix well.

Prepare whipped topping according to package directions; fold into pear mixture. Fold in cooled gelatin. Pour into an oiled 4 1/2 cup mold. Chill overnight.

Just before serving, unmold salad onto a lettuce-lined platter.

Serves 6-8.
