    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!)

    This is a light Jello salad that works well in a Jello mould or just in a bowl. We have served this every Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember. I suppose you could try other Jello Flavors, but we like the Lime so much, I never have.

    Recipe #103459

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

    Recipe #102700

    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.

    I adopted this recipe after my friend, Shelly, left the site. She is very proud of this recipe and swears that the shredded cheddar MAKES the salad. Our dear friend, winkki, is also fond of this and claims that it is the only jello salad that she will eat because she remembers her grandmother making it. May jello live on for all of us! Shelly's original comments are: "I make fun of jello molds but this is NOT a jello mold! It is a little weird but my mother makes this every year around the holidays and I love it. Sorry the amounts are kinda vague. Hope they suffice. It's kinda like a big bowl of dreamsicle! (sorta) Cook time includes my minimal chill time. So good! Also, I'm sure you can probably use INSTANT vanilla pudding but my dear mother to this day always uses the kind ya have to cook. Go figure."

    Recipe #84301

    A cool shimmering cup of coffee you can eat with a spoon. I grew up on this in Rhode Island & have not found it anywhere else. For the true coffee lover.

    Recipe #81870

    Perfect for a holiday dinner or anytime when something tart yet sweet will only do. Your family and guests will love the slightly crunchy texture along with the creamy topping. This recipe was given to me by a friend, and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

    Recipe #80121

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

    Recipe #79509

    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.

    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

    I remember being able to buy this type of dessert mix in the supermarket years ago. I don't know if it's still available, but if not, you can now make it from scratch! It is not vegan cause gelatin is not vegan!

    Recipe #39931

    I like this recipe because it is so versatile and uses what you may have in the refrigerator and/or pantry...Not to mention the wonderful, refreshing flavor!

    Recipe #37428

    I know this one sounds weird, but the combination of sweet and salty is very tasty!

    I use this recipe to top-off or put between other Jello recipes. Perfect for making a patriotic mold.

    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!

    Recipe #24098

    I do not know where my aunt got this recipe from, but she made it for me about 15 years ago and it became an automatic favorite. We call it the fish because it's made out of Tuna and on a fish mold. I have no idea what the original name is.

    Recipe #218597

    This recipe is one my father-in-law was very fond of. It's a family favorite, not only because Pat loved it but also because it's dang good. Cook time is mostly chill time.

    Recipe #109625

    This is a variation on the traditional cranberry/pineapple salad; red and green layers with a cream cheese layer in between. My mom makes this at Christmas and/or Thanksgiving and I can't stop eating it. Would be good for potlucks, too. Yum!

    Recipe #108495

    This is a family favorite, I can remember loving it from my first bite when I was a tiny tot. It makes a beautiful presentation when put in a glass 11x13 baking dish. It takes a few minutes every hour or so to tend to the 9 layers, but it will be worth every minute! Be sure to take copies of the recipe when you take this to your next party. Be assured people will ask for the recipe!

    Recipe #107141

    This salad is beautiful in color (lovely served in a clear glass or crystal bowl) and refreshing in taste. Different from other cranberry-pineapple salads, this one is not made with gelatin, making it lighter and fluffier. Begin making the salad 2 days before you need to serve it.
