Lime Seafoam Salad
1 large package lime Jello
3 cups boiling water
1 cup juice from pears
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vinegar
1 large can pears, diced
1 cup fine chopped pecans (or walnuts)
6 ounces cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon ginger
Dissolve Jello in boiling water and add salt and vinegar. Pour 1/2 to 1 inch
into a ring mold. Chill remaining Jello until syrupy.
While Jello is cooling soften cheese using a small amount of milk and blend in
ginger. When Jello is thick beat at high speed until it is very light and foamy.
Add cream cheese and then fold in the pears and nuts. Pour this mixture into
mold on top of the solid layer. Unmold on large round plate. Mandarin oranges
mixed with coconut or a container of salad dressing can be put in the center.
