My grandparents are definitely on my mind this week so I thought I would post a childhood recipe. Growing up in the 70's, gelatin salad was a staple at every holiday meal. Confession: I still love it!!
1 package orange gelatin
1 package cream cheese, 8 oz., softened
2 cans crushed pineapple with juice, 15 oz.
2 cans mandarin oranges, drained, 10 oz.
Prepare gelatin, adding 3/4 cup boiling water and mix thoroughly. Let gelatin partially cool and very slowly beat in cream cheese until completely blended. Fold in pineapple and oranges. Pour into a gelatin mold and chill until completely set.
