7-Up Salad

You would think that after a year-or-so this blogger would remember to take photo's of a dish in the making but once again I forgot and just have pictures of the end result.

I first made this 7-Up Salad back in can I remember? Well, Ben and I were married in the late fall of 1972 and I started getting interested in being a bit domestic the following year.

A dear friend who has since passed gave me this recipe and we have treasured it ever since! It is almost a dessert so if you are watching calories you may want to avoid making this!

7-Up Salad

2 packages lemon jello
2 cups boiling water
2 cups 7-Up
2 bananas, sliced
1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup colored mini marshmallows
1 large can crushed pineapple, drained (juice, saved)
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 pint whipping cream, whipped
Grated cheddar cheese for garnish

Dissolve jello in boiling water, add 7-Up and allow to chill until syrupy.
Add pineapple, banana slices, nuts, and marshmallows. Place in fridge until firm.

Mix flour and sugar together well. Add beaten egg and pineapple juice and cook until thick. Remove from heat and add butter and allow to cool.
Fold in the whipped cream and spread over the salad.

Trim with grated cheddar cheese and enjoy!

  1. Thank you for posting this recipe. My mom always made this when I was a kid. She passed suddenly in 2009 and I was never able to ask her for the recipe... It is one of my favorites from when I was a kid. Again Thank you for posting this.
