7-Up Salad

I must admit that although I am from a state where Jello is jokingly (or maybe seriously) known as a staple--I'm not such a huge fan of Jello salads. This salad is a HUGE exception! It is one of my very, very favorite salads. It goes perfectly with a nice Sunday dinner. The 7-up adds a great little kick to the jello and I love the bananas and the whip cream topping that goes on the top. This has become a favorite around our house--especially with the little ones. This would be a great addition to an Easter dinner if you're looking for something new to shake up your meal.

7-Up Salad from Barbs (my mom)

1 lg. pkg lemon jello—dissolve in 1 C boiling water

3 C 7-up. Let set until slightly thickened in fridge.

Fold in:
Sliced bananas (the more the better)
1 ½ C miniature marshmallows
1 Lg. can crushed pinappled (drained)—save syrup

Let jello set completely and add topping:

1 cup pineapple syrup (add water to make 1 cup)
1 egg (well beaten)
½ C sugar
1 T cornstarch
Mix and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thick. Fold in ½ pt whipped cream (already whipped). Spread on Jell-0.

My mom would put shredded cheddar cheese on top of the whip cream...sounds interesting but it is still just as good. Thank you for the recipe I've been looking for it!
