Pear Lime Salad

A pretty green salad to add to your spring and summer company menu!

2 small pkgs. lime Jell-O
2 C. hot water
1 C. cold water
1 lg. can pears, drained (reserve syrup)
8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
12 oz. Cool Whip

In large serving bowl, dissolve Jell-O in hot water. Add cold water and all the pear syrup you drained off. Puree pears and softened cream cheese in a blender. You may need to add a little of the Jell-O liquid if it's too thick. When it's all nice and smooth with no lumps of cream cheese, add it to your serving bowl with the Jell-O liquid. Stir well to incorporate, then refrigerate. When it's slightly thickened, whisk in Cool Whip. Again, make sure it's nice and smooth with no lumps of Cool Whip. Chill several hours.
