Creamy Peach Salad!

 
 
 
This "Creamy Peach Salad" is so cool and refreshing and it's pretty enough for a special occasion dinner.  It's also really easy and can be made in advance, which is always great!   You can use canned or fresh peaches in this also.  If you have fresh peaches, by all means, use them. This is also very easy to make sugar free!  Here is what you will need:
 
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. peach gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (15 oz.) can peach slices, drained and diced  (can use an equal amount of fresh peaches)
1 (8 oz.) can of crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup lemon-lime flavored soda (like Sprite or 7-Up)
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 (8 oz.) carton of frozen whipped topping, thawed
whipped cream for garnish
 
Dissolve gelatin in water.   In a bowl, whip cream cheese until it's fluffy and then mix in the gelatin mixture.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in the peaches, pineapple, lemon-lime soda, vanilla and nuts.   Fold in the whipped topping.   Pour into a 9"x13" dish and chill for 3-4 hours or overnight.   To serve, cut in squares and garnish each square with a dollop of whipped cream.
