Congealed Salad

A low carb version of the popular congealed salad we eat down south which is sure to cure a sweet tooth.



  1. Prepare the gelatin (like Jell-O) by the package directions (use your favorite flavor). Put in refrigerator until it starts thickening but not totally congealed.
  2. With a mixer, blend in cream cheese until all little bits are mixed throughout (you could also use cottage cheese).
  3. Refrigerate again until thicker and then stir in whipping cream (like Cool Whip) and pecans (or other nuts you like).
  4. Refrigerate until congealed and fluffy.

Delicious yes, but not the greatest on a diet. You need self control and not eat the entire bowl!!!!

Too much fat with the cream cheese and the whipping cream. Not for SBD.

It is actually cool whip lite and you can use reduced fat cream cheese which are both in small quanities. Totally fine for SB in my opionion. Once you fix a single serving you are getting very little of each ingredients. Mostly jello.

I have made this recipe for years and love it. I use fat free cottage cheese instead of cream cheese and it lowers the fat & calories and makes it work for most diets

Crunchy and fresh, this salad of sprouts and walnuts is a delicious twist on the more traditional recipe.
