Under-the-Sea Salad Recipe

Under-the-Sea Salad           

1 can (15-1/2 oz.) pear halves in light syrup, undrained
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Brand Lime Flavor Gelatin
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
6 oz. (3/4 of 8 oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

DRAIN pears, reserving 3/4 cup of the syrup. Dice pears; set aside.

STIR boiling water into gelatin and salt in medium bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in reserved syrup and lemon juice. Pour 1-1/4 cups gelatin mixture into 8x4-inch loaf pan or 4-cup mold sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until set but not firm (should stick to finger when touched and should mound).

BEAT remaining gelatin mixture gradually into cream cheese until smooth. Stir in pears and cinnamon. Spoon over clear gelatin in pan.

REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Cut into 8 slices. Store leftover gelatin mold in refrigerator.
