Lime Gelatin Salad

by Melissa

6oz pkg lime gelatin
8 oz can crushed pineapple drained
1 c. boiling water
1 cup lemon-lime soda
8 oz. pkg cream cheese softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
8 oz. whipped topping
15 oz. can mandarin oranges drained

Dissolve gelatin in water. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese till fluffy. Stir in gelatin mixture & beat until smooth. Stir in vanilla, oragnes, pieapple, soda & pecans. Chill till mixture mounds slighly when dropped from a spoon. Fold in 3/4 of the whipped topping. Pour into 13x9" dish. Refrigerate for 3-4 horus or till firm. Cut into squares; garnish with theremaining whipped topping. Yield 16-20 servings.

*a funny note: I served this on Smith Sunday once and dad didn't dish any for himself. It looks kind of unappatizing. Only after everyone else had some and commented on it, did he dish himself any. He liked it and had seconds. It is pretty tasty.
