Flavored with lime jello and thickened with cream cheese and mayonnaise, this retro dessert has the sweet taste of lime sorbet with mixed fruit and pecans.
‣ 8 ounce cream cheese, softened ‣ 9 ounce lime jello, (3 3oz packages) ‣ 3 cup water ‣ 3/4 cup mayonnaise ‣ 45 ounce fruit cocktail, thoroughly drained (3 15oz cans) ‣ 1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Whip the softened cream cheese and the powdered lime jello on medium-high speed until thoroughly mixed. Remove the bowl from the mixer.
Boil some water and pour it into the bowl with the cream cheese and jello. Use a spatula to mix the ingredients until the jello has dissolved and the cream cheese has melted.
Place the bowl in the refrigerator for one or two hours so that it can thicken up a bit. Check the jello frequently and stir to check the consistency. If you notice a ring forming around the edges of the bowl, you can move on to the next step.
Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and add in the mayonnaise, fruit cocktail, and chopped pecans. Use a spatula to stir until the mayonnaise has dissolved.
Spray a standard, 10-inch bundt pan with cooking spray, then pour the jello salad mixture inside. Use the spatula to smooth out the top. Once done, transfer to the refrigerator to set.
