This Jello salad is a tradition in our family to serve with ham or pork. It has shredded cabbage and carrots in it which give it a nice crunch. My Mom always served it when I was a kid and she can't remember where she got the recipe from. My kids love it. You can make with with regular or sugar free jello.

Thanks for posting this. Next month we are having a 50's style shower and bringing pinwheel sandwiches, etc. I said I'd have to find the Lime jello salad recipe from somewhere. Here it is, and I thank you for it.

Thanks for sharing. My church made this jello salad every year for their community 'Turkey Dinner'. Brings back old memories!
