Amish Dry Lime Gelatin Salad / Dessert (Jello)

"Found on www.AmishDining.com. A recipe seldom gets any easier than this one. Kids could make this with just a bit of supervision. My mother used to make something like this that had these same ingredients. This is much like her's, and since she was not a dessert maker, I am sure she would have opted for a simple recipe. Other flavors of gelatin work too, like Cherry and Strawberry which are perfect for Valentine's Day. NOTE: Times do not include the 2-3 hours for chilling time. Servings are approximate."

    Recently had this at a homeschool co-open gathering. Had not had it since I was a child and had completely forgotten about it. Had to make it as soon as we got home. Used sugar free cherry Jell-o and it was delicious! Thank you for sharing!

    Easy to make. I myself didn't care for it that much but my friend loved it and almost ate the whole dish at one time. The little bit left over he took home.

    So yummy! My mother also made this while I was growing up and used pecan pieces as well. It's so good, and I'm glad to add it to my "go to list" for get togethers. Light and so good! Thanks for posting!! : )

    My mother made this recipe all the time when I was a kid. She used pecan pieces instead of walnuts. She would let the jello slightly thicken in the refrigerator before adding in the other ingredients, and then chill it thoroughly. A delicious salad!
