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.

  1. Hi! I just want to tell you I absolutely love so many of your recipes! I am a senior lady on my own, so I trim most recipes back to just cook for myself….But your recipes are so simple, in many ways a bit “old fashioned”, which I love! Many of them are so similar to recipes I grew up enjoying! I have used so many of them, too many to list here. Thank you for continuing your blog!! And for sharing your wonderful recipes with me! I hope you will continue to share!

  2. Thank you for your kind remarks. As I get older, I am not cooking as much so I don’t have as many recipes to share. I, too, have been cutting back on making so many servings. It’s just the two of us and we go out to eat a lot with our senior friends. Blessings to you!
