Bear N Mom Recipes - White Jello Salad
This recipe for jello salad is unique in that it has no coloring at all. It is white and if done right will not take on the hue of any other color. It can be turned out onto a bed of lettuce for regular meals or you can be creative and turn it out with other fruits and vegetables for the holiday table. I like to garnish with the strawberries and green leave candy to give a nice presentation.
Blend together 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla or almond extract.
Gradually add 1/2 cup milk.
Disolve unflavored gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Add boiling water to make 1 cup.
Stir gelatin into cream cheese mixture after it is slightly cooled. Chill until slightly thickened and then fold in one container of Cool Whip.
Chill in 1-1/2 qt. mold.
Serve with fresh strawberries or marachino cherries.
