A MUST for us! A neighbor in Omaha had given this to my Mom in the early'60's and she has made it every Thanksgiving since. Now I make the holiday, so I make the mold! It's very easy. Keep in mind that this has walnuts just in case you have guests who are allergic to nuts. Enjoy! *You can make this 2 days before serving so I will make it on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and keep it in the mold in the refrigerator and just unmold it before serving.
I got this recipe from my boss' aunt and love it! The recipe says that this fruit salad can also be made into fruit cups. I'm typing out the recipe as stated, but I drain the pineapple and mandarins when I make it and I also mix the strawberries in instead of using them as a garnish. Just a note, the jello is supposed to turn out medium consistency and the bananas will not brown because of the lemon!
When ever I serve this dish I get rave reviews. My grandma used to make this for our holiday meals; it was the only thing that NEVER had leftovers. When most people hear the ingredients. they are often skeptical until they try it. So far it has won over everyone that has tried it. It is so simple to make that you can have it any night. Prep time is time to combine items and cook time is time to chill. Servings are approx.
This is my favorite way to make jell-o for office parties and when entertaining. Because you have to wait between layers for the jell-o to set, I usually start it a day or two before I need it ... I do one layer before going to bed (or before leaving for work) then the second layer when I get up or whenever I have time like after work the next day.
I usually have a little extra mix left over from layer two. I just put it in a small container and enjoy it for a snack.
You will need a jell-o ring mold to make this as written but you can use anything you want to like little custard cups, etc.
Water comes to a very fast boil so it takes almost no time at all except for the refrigeration time. The time posted does not include setting time. Your number of servings will depend on how big you cut your slices.
This salad is my daughter and mother's favorite Thanksgiving recipe. I used to make it every year for the teachers at my children's school--they RAVED over it. After Thanksgiving, I like to have it as a snack over plain yogurt. It is absolutely to die for!
I based this on a parfait sold in our cafe at work. The yogurt is made rich and creamy by the addition of pudding mix! You can use whatever fruit you like, I like to use blueberries but whatever is in season will work.
Its not Thanksgiving for me unless I have cranberry jello salad. This recipe comes from my mother's side of the family and has been a tradition at Souder Thanksgiving meals for as long as I have been alive. Super easy and delicious! Cooling and chilling take several hours, so prepare at least a day before you plan on serving. I always double the recipe; if you do this, split between at least two containers before chilling or it will take forever to set. (Its still good if it doesn't set!)
What I love about this jello-based salad is that it's not too sweet. Like the name implies, it is a "heavenly" accompaniment to everything else on your plate. If you like pina coladas, you'll love this salad. I think it got the name because it looks like a bowlful of divinity candy once it has set up (note that it needs to be refrigerated 12-24 hours before serving). I hope you enjoy this family favorite!
A refreshing, low fat, no mayonnaise waldorf salad. My mom used to make a version of this in the '50's. This is so good and good for you. The first time you make this, I would add the vinegar a little at a time to get the tartness that's right for you. If you don't like vinegar you can substitute lemon juice or a combination of both.
This recipe is actually called Cranberry Delight, but after finding a couple other recipes here with that name, I thought I should change this one, since it is different. My Grandma made this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I miss my Grandma. :-(
This wonderful salad was one of my MIL's specialties. Everyone looked forward to her bringing to any family occasion. The addition of cottage cheese makes this, for me, a cooling summer lunch, also. Cooking time is actually chilling time
