Ginny’s Famous Sea Foam Salad

Christmas 2019

Since my Mom was well known for being the queen of Jello, I thought I would share her most popular recipe.

Sea Foam Salad


  • 1  2 1/2 # Can of Pears
  • 1  Package of Lime Jello
  • 6  ounces of Cream Cheese
  • 2  T cream or half & half
  • 1  C whipped cream (she used 8oz Cool Whip)


Drain juice from pears – save and heat 1 Cup of juice to boiling point and pour over gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Let cool. Mix cream cheese & 2 T cream until smooth. Add gelatin mixture and beat with electric mixer. Chill until partially thickened – fold in well drained mashed pears & whipped cream. Pour into mold. Chill until firm.
