With Thanksgiving around the corner I've been taking my favorite recipes and experimenting with low/no fat ingredients. With my anxiety about all the food, I wanted to try my hardest to make it alittle less stressful. My favorite dish is called 7-up Salad.
Ok, it looks like baby vomit but I swear it is the best stuff around! Growin up, my Mom would make her 7-up Salad for Thanksgiving and Christmas only and as an adult I never really understood why it was a holiday only thing. Every year my brother and I look forward to this one dish more than the turkey or ham.
It's the one requirement we have (along with deviled eggs) to make each holiday a success.
The recipe is very easy - lime jello, a can of 7-up, pineapple, and cream cheese (pecans are optional but I'm not a nut type of person). I made everything with sugar free or no fat ingredients with a hope and a prayer it would come out edible. Let's be honest, it wasn't as good as the real stuff. Now I'm frustrated and craving some REAL 7-up Salad with all it's sugar and fattening ingredients. I'm doomed.
