My mom has been making this jellied salad for YEARS!! It is by far the most often requested jellied salad. Delicious for any holiday or as a cool summer salad. Sugar-free (light) Jello works well for this salad. Cooking time is the setting time.

Directions

  1. Dissolve lemon and lime powders into boiling water.
  2. Stir in pickle liquid, lemon juice, and pepper.
  3. Pour about 1/4 to 1/3 of the mixture into a lightly oiled 6 cup ring mold; refrigerate until almost set.
  4. Before refrigerating the remaining 3/4 or 2/3 jelly mixture, whisk in the mayonnaise; refrigerate until almost set.
  5. Remove mold from refrigerator, push pickles into jelly to make a decorative design (stand the pickle slices up or laying down); refrigerate again until set.
  6. Once the jelly mayonnaise mixture is almost set fold in cabbage, carrots and chopped pickles; pour this mixture over clear jelly in mold.
  7. Refrigerate until set about 3 to 4 hours.
  8. Unmold before serving.
