My family enjoys this lovely layered salad in the summer with grilled hamburgers. Although I haven't used the recipe long, it's quickly become a favorite. A good friend shared it with me, and every time I make it, I think of her. —Susan Kirby, Tipton, Indiana
Pineapple Gelatin Salad Recipe photo by Taste of Home
Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Dissolve gelatin in water; add pineapple. Pour into a 13x9-in. dish coated with cooking spray; chill until almost set, about 45 minutes.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese and whipped topping until smooth. Carefully spread over gelatin; chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, lemon juice, water, flour, egg yolks and reserved pineapple juice; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Cool. Carefully spread over cream cheese layer. Chill for at least 1 hour.
