Makeover Fluffy Lime Salad

Loaded with crunchy walnuts, tangy pineapple and lip smacking lime flavor, this refreshing salad could even double as dessert!

1 can (8-ounce) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained,
1 package (3-ounce) sugar-free lime gelatin,
3 tablespoons water,
1 package 6-ounce reduced-fat cream cheese,
1 cup miniature marshmallows,
1/2 cup chopped walnuts,
1 carton (8-ounce) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed.

Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a small saucepan, combine the gelatin, water and reserved juice. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Refrigerate until syrupy, about 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Stir in gelatin mixture, marshmallows, walnuts and pineapple. Fold in whipped topping. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

For the makeover simply using whipped topping instead of whipped cream, reduced-fat cream cheese and sugar-free gelatin subtracted 147 calories and a full 16g fat, but didnít change the creamy texture or delicious lime flavor. Sweet!
Have a mice day.
