    Ugly Jello Salads

    It seems that just about every family has its own jello salad that it fixes during the holiday season, and in a conversation with my friend Lori from work she referred to her family's version as an "ugly jello salad." I simply couldn't resist this title, and while admittedly not all of the traditional family jello salads are truly ugly in appearance and actually are quite tasty... this is how I'll continue to think of them for a very long time. (Please note that the order in which these recipes are displayed do not reflect, in any way, those dishes of which I'd actually like to partake. Thank you!)

    Very tasty. The Port Wine adds gives a little pizzazz.

    Recipe #79509

    Served at my grandma's house for every holiday occasion as long as I can remember. You wouldn't know there is cabbage in this unless you saw the ingredient list! Tastes like fruit and whipped cream!

    Recipe #70289

    It's not the prettiest jello salad, but it's the tastiest! The cream cheese, pecans and the celery are the secrets. A friend's mother gave me her recipe. We only have this at Christmas!

    Recipe #103163

    I haven't tried this one yet. I found it in one of my multitude of cookbooks while just browsing. It sounds like it would be really refreshing for a summer side dish or light dessert.

    Recipe #93027

    A delicious and refreshing summertime salad! A lime Jell-o salad, made creamy by lemon pudding. Can use one can of lemon pudding instead of the prepared lemon instant pudding. Posted in response to a request. Servings and times are estimates.

    Recipe #94212

    This has been a long-standing part of my family's Thanksgiving meal. Makes a lovely layered salad with a nutty top. We could no more do Thanksgiving without "The Green Stuff" than we could do without the turkey!

    Our family always has this as a side dish for our meals. It is perfect with hamburgers or any main dish, like "Greggie's Hotdish"! Whenever we bring it to parties, it is gone in a second- Everyone loves Green Stuff!

    My mother got this recipe from a dear family friend in the 1950's. No matter who in our family is making Thanksgiving dinner, you can bet this dish will be served. Note: the times indicated do not include refrigeration time. Cranberries from Wisconsin make this a Midwest U.S. regional recipe. (Also, I first enjoyed it in Missour - another fine Midwestern state).

    Recipe #41708

    My husband loves this stuff. My mother-in-law makes it for all big family dinners.

    Recipe #102700

    One of perhaps three worthwhile recipes I took from a high school Home Ec class many years ago. I've played with it over the years, and this seems to be a good balance of flavors and textures.

    Recipe #89469

    My Mother in law makes this every holiday! We love it! The time does not include set time.

    Recipe #80162

    This is a great jello salad that my grandmother made one year for Thanksgiving. We have made it many times since then and it is always enjoyed by everyone. The list of ingredients may sound strange, but it truly is a great tasting little dessert. Light and sweet and fruity !

    Recipe #97980

    I have not tried this recipe because I do not care for wine but it looks so nice and refreshing for those of you who do enjoy wine. This looks like such a nice summer recipe that I just had to post it for you all. Chill time is not included in the prep. time. You will have to be sure to definitely makes this one ahead of time.

    Recipe #94186

    Very delicious. Make for Thanksgiving and Christmas. A special treat!

    Recipe #59123

    A nice summery side dish, good at buffets, potlucks, or Sunday night suppers. You can use any colorful vegetable combination you like. We've made this in our family for years.

    Recipe #56949

    My sister Julie's recipe. The only thing on my kid's plate at any dinner party or pot luck. Prep time does not include chill time.

    Recipe #55737

    I like Jell-O only served two ways, this is my favorite of the two. I usually see this at family reunions or sunday dinner. I could eat this any time.

    Recipe #49902

    This recipe has been a big hit at family gatherings and potlucks for years! It could also be used as a light dessert. I have also used French Vanilla pudding mix. It makes a large amount so make sure to use a very large mixing bowl.
