Such a Delicious Salad

A few weeks ago a friend brought a salad similar to this for a dinner to which I had been invited.

I loved the flavors but thought I could improve on it.  It seemed too sweet so I wanted to try reducing the sugar.  It also had celery in it which I don't like in a fruit salad.

This is the result.

Yummy Apple Salad

1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple, undrained

1/4 c. sugar

1 3 oz. pkg lemon jello

1 8 ounce pkg cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 c. diced apples

1 c. chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

1 c. whipped topping

1-2 sliced banans, optional


In saucepan combine pineapple and sugar.  Boil 3 minutes.  Add lemon jello. Stir until dissolved.  Add cream cheese.  Stir until mixture is thoroughly combined.  Cool.  Fold in apples, nuts, whipped topping, and bananas, if using.  Pour into 9 inch square pan.  Chill until firm.
