READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Pam-I-Am

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.

My mother used to make this and forced me to eat it when I was a little boy 50+ years ago.It is truly vile and I still feel nauseated when I remember that glop.I would suggest feeding it to the prisoners at Guantonamo Bay but it would violate the Geneva Convention.
