Sea Foam Salad

I was so hungry one day for something cold and refreshing.  I had all the ingredients in my pantry so this is what I made.  I made only half of this recipe and put it in a smaller bowl.  So simple and so delicious!

  • 1 (29-oz.) can pears, in heavy syrup
  • 1 (6-oz.) package lime jello
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Open can of pears and drain liquid into a medium saucepan.  Set pears aside.

Bring liquid to a boil over high heat.  Remove from heat and use a whisk to stir in the package of dry jello.  Stir constantly until jello is dissolved.

Add the jello mixture, pears and cream cheese to your blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the heavy cream on high speed until stiff peaks form.  Do not over beat.

Fold the whipped cream into the blended jello mixture.  It’s okay if there are a few streaks of cream.  Pour the mixture into a jello mold, bundt pan, 9 x 13 pan or a large bowl.  If you use a pan that you want to invert, spray the pan with cooking spray before pouring it in.  (And then when you invert, you may need to dip bottom of pan into hot water for several seconds before turning it over.)

Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Serves 12.
