Broken Glass Salad

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by KCShell

This salad creates a beautiful display in a clear glass bowl. It uses three different colors of jello which are covered in a creamy, sweet pineapple, lemon sauce. It is a holiday favorite. I received this from my friend, June. Chill time should include allowing jello to set and then allowing the whole dessert to chill for 5-8 hours or overnight.

This had really good flavor, but I used the full 8 oz of cool whip and I think that was too much and was my fault. I would also have the lemon jello mixture quite cold before adding it to the cool whip. Mine was maybe luke warm and it turn quite running. This wasn't quite what I remembered from my childhood, but it was good.
