This is not a complaint — or even a greeting. (Folks old enough to have listened to Jack Benny on the radio during his Jello-sponsered years know he opened his show each week with this greeting.)
No, this is a cheer, as in: "Yay! Jello — again!!" Dessert or salad: if it's jello, it's got to be good! And it's got to be here, too.
This is a favorite recipe at our Thanksgiving table. My mom has made this every year for as long as I can remember. Now I make it for my family. Prep time does not include chilling in the fridge. This makes a beautiful salad. It's also great at Christmas. Put it in a mold before chilling. After plating it, garnish with fresh mint or parsley
I hate the term 'molded salad' - it sounds like something green & fuzzy. This is my mother's Jello salad recipe. Most people I know will turn up their nose when I say Jello salad but there are never leftovers. Hmmmm......
I'm not positive on the exact ounces - small boxs of jello, big can of cranberry & small can of pineapple.
This multiplies easily & can be made several days ahead & kept refrigerated.
This recipe has been flying around the weight watchers message boards. The whole recipe is 4 Weight Watchers points as written. Can be used as a lemon Meringue pie filling or fold in whipped cream for a light lemon mousse. NOTE: Use the small boxes of jello and pudding that serves 4. AND you must use the cook and serve pudding. Can use mixes with sugar instead of sugar free.
Because of the medication he is taking, my DH cannot eat fruit though he can eat veggies. Please don't ask me to explain. Anyway this recipe is getting lots of use. It is a very pretty molded salad with a bit of history in our family. The first time I made it, I made it a day ahead for a function. I had difficulty unmolding it the next morning, however, so in desperation I held the mold upside down under the hot water faucet. Needless to say, out came the jello right into the sink and sliding toward the garbage disposal. I frantically grabbed at it but it was like grabbing a ghost. It wasn't till my hand followed the salad right into the disposal that I came to my senses. Luckily I had time to make and set another salad! Note that cooking time is actually chilling time. Recipe comes from "The Ham Cookbook."
I am sure that many of you have had different variations of this yummy jello treat before. However, I didn't see the recipe on the site, so I decided to add it, it's one of my favorites! Plus it's gluten free. Cooking time is the time the jello takes to set.
This is a very light, cool, and creamy jello salad that compliments any kind of meal. I received this recipe from my dear mother in law, and it is still prepared by her at every holiday meal. Its very important that you follow the directions exactly for the mixing of the ingredients, or otherwise it may not blend well together. Cooking time includes refrigeration set up. I hope you enjoy this as much as our family does.
This is the ONE! I finally found the Jello Mold for which I have spent so much time searching. This was in the Farimount Temple Cookbook from 1964 and my sister in law finally found it for me. In those days we didn't have apricot jello so we used the orange, today we don't have to do that anymore.
A light and luscious ending to a meal. Adopted from the Recipezaar account Feb 2005. This pie works well using all light products, such as sugar free strawberry Jello, fat free, sugar free vanilla Jello pudding, ultra low fat cool whip and skim milk. I used a graham crust when I tried it, but a standard pastry crust or shortbread crust would be good too. The packet size in the recipe is the standard 4 serving size package.
