Under The Sea Jello Salad

June 8th offers a salute to Oceans Here in the United States on the North American Continent. The United States of America is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, Canada to the north, and Mexico to the south. So on one side you can enjoy the beauty of the Pacific and on the other the beauty of the Atlantic. I offer a salute to Oceans with a vintage under the Sea Jello Dish



Under-the-sea salad

Pears and cream cheese lie beneath a clear sea-green layer after unmolding.
1 package (3 oz.) Jell-O Lime or Lemon-Lime Gelatin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup boiling water
1 can (1 lb.) pear halves
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 packages (3 oz. each) cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon ginger

Dissolve Jell-O Gelatin and salt in boiling water. Drain pears, measuring 3/4 cup syrup; add water, if necessary. Dice pears and set aside. Add pear syrup and lemon juice to gelatin. Measure 1 1/4 cups into a 1-quart mold. Chill until set, but not firm.

Meanwhile, soften cheese until creamy. Gradually add remaining gelatin, blending until smooth. Add ginger. Chill until very thick. Fold in pears. Spoon into mold. Chill until firm. Unmold on crisp lettuce. Makes about 4 cups, or 8 side salads.
