7-Up Salad

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Here is a great recipe for 7-Up Salad that I found on What’s For Dinner … and dessert? I always like a good Jell-O salad and this recipe was different from what I have made in the past. When I served this, my husband said his mom use to make a Jell-O salad just like this when he was growing. He also said how much he really enjoyed it.

I don’t think I got the topping just right. Mine turned out a little runny. I think that I didn’t let the topping mixture cool enough before I added the whipped cream. The Jell-O was also not as firm as I like it. I’m not sure if my pineapple wasn’t drained enough or what. So next time, I think I’ll decrease the 7-Up by 1/4 cup. The other thing was I used Sprite. Even with these issues it was still really delicious and I will definitely make it again.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lg. pkg lemon Jell-O
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 cups 7-up
  • Sliced bananas I used 2 but 3 would have been better
  • 1 ½ cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 Lg. can crushed pineapple drained—save the juice
  • 1 cup pineapple juice you saved add water to make 1 cup
  • 1 egg well beaten
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup whipping cream whipped

Instructions
 

  • Dissolve in Jello in the boiling water.
  • Add the 7-Up to the Jello and let set until slightly thickened in fridge. (I think I waited 20-30 minutes)
  • Fold the bananas, marshmallows, and pineapple into the thickened Jello and pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Place in the fridge and let the Jello set completely while you prepare the topping.
  • In a sauce pan, combine the reserved pineapple juice, egg, sugar, and cornstarch. Mix and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thick. Allow mixture to cool.
  • Fold whipping cream into the cooled juice mixture and spread on top of set Jell-0.

    1. HI Jessie,

      I am looking for a childhood recipe 7 Up Salad. I remember it with mozzarella cheese. Is this this same recipe just add mozzarella?

  1. This has been in my family for 45+ years….what the OP did wrong was the liquid ratio is off….for the large box it should be 2 cups boiling water dissolve the jello ( I put my jello powder in the 13×13 dish and pour in the 2C boiling water and stir until dissolved then pour in 2C ice cold 7-Up or Sprite……then go ahead and put the drained crushed pineapple in and stir to mix things up really good….then I layer my bananas on top of the jello…they will sink partially……then layer the small marshmellos on top and refrigerate over night……..we make the topping different as the recipe calls for dream whip not cool whip but we have done it both ways…….with the dream whip you mix the flour and pineapple juice, eggs, sugar (we have always used flour not corn starch) and mix together then let cool until thick….then fold this into the dream whip or cool whip mixture and layer on top of the marshmellows.
