CHRISTMAS SALAD

I thought I would give you this recipe that Mom made for years at Christmas. It was a tradition that was passed down.
I really wish I had a bowl to show you but I won't make it until Christmas Eve.
You use a clear bowl so the red, white and green will show through.
Three Layer Jello Salad
1st Layer (Green)
1 box Lime Jello ~Mix with 1 cup hot water.
Drain #2 can crushed pineapple (Save Juice)
Mix pineapple and 1 cup pineapple juice into Jello.
Let sit in Fridge until jelled
Middle layer is White
1 pk. Lemon Jello mixed with 1 cup hot water
Soften 8oz. cream cheese and put in hot jello mixture
Add 2 cups Cool Whip , add to jello and mix.
Pour on top of 1st layer and put in Fridge until jelled
Top layer is RED
2 Boxes Cherry jello
Follow directions on box
Pour on top of 2nd layer and let it jell
Put 1/2 finally chopped nuts on top
It is really festive and pretty and good. Don't just serve from top. Get all three layers in one serving.

Wouldn't this be lovely made in a straight-sided trifle bowl? Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
