"This recipe has the sweet, fruity flavors of Grandma Lula Mae's salad, but made for today," Libbie says. "I think Grandma would surely approve."

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water in a medium bowl. Let stand 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 cup boiling water over gelatin mixture, and stir until gelatin dissolves.

Step 2

Slowly whisk in sweetened condensed milk and next 2 ingredients. Fold in pineapple. Stir in green food coloring, if desired. Pour mixture into a 4-cup ring mold, and chill 4 hours or until set. Gently run a small knife around outer edge of mold to break seal. Dip bottom of mold in warm water for about 15 seconds. Unmold salad onto a serving plate.

Step 3

Beat marshmallow crème and cream cheese at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Stir in 1/4 to 1/2 cup yogurt. Serve with gelatin salad.
