what you need
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large box orange Jell-O
  • 1 med. can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 pkg. grated Kraft Velveeta cheese, or the equivalent
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • Whipped topping
make it
Boil water and sugar until sugar dissolves. Dissolve Jell-O in hot water. Add undrained crushed pineapple. Refrigerate until partially set.

Add Velveeta Cheese and nuts, mix well. Add enough whipped topping to make it look peachy. Refrigerate until well set.
This was my mother-in-law's recipe, and she made it for every family gathering, as do I. Since it isn't overly-sweet, it is good as a salad with a regular meal, especially a holiday meal.

I have also made it with Lime Jell-O - my favorite. Once I made it with Cherry Jell-O and added chopped maraschino cherries. That was too sweet for a regular meal, so I used it as dessert.

This has a taste like no other salad that I have ever tasted, and my family loves it!
