Mountain Dew Salad

Mountain Dew Salad

Bonnie Witt, Topeka, KS, wrote that she's noticed I'm a fan of Diet Mountain Dew and wanted me to "reform" her all-time favorite fruit salad featuring regular "Dew". All I can say, is that if you're not a fan of Diet Dew yet, you will be after one bite of this!

Serves 8

3 (4-serving) packages JELL-O sugar-free lemon gelatin*
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, undrained
2 cups Diet Mountain Dew*
2 cups (2 medium) sliced bananas
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup Cool Whip Free

In a large bowl, combine 2 packages dry gelatin and boiling water. Mix well to dissolve gelatin. Stir in undrained pineapple and 1 cup Diet Mountain Dew. Add bananas. Mix gently to combine. Pour mixture into a 8-by-8-inch dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. In a medium bowl, combine dry pudding mix, remaining package dry gelatin, and dry milk powder. Add remaining cup Diet Mountain Dew. Mix well using a wire whisk. Fold in Cool Whip Free. Spread topping mixture evenly over set salad. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Cut into 8 servings.
