Congealed Spinach Salad

"A unique way to serve spinach, this refreshing salad was a specialty of Miss Gay in our church in Tennessee. She always shared delicious food and set a beautiful table. This is made ahead the night before so you'll have plenty of time to set a beautiful table too."

directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in 3/4 cup boiling water.
  • Add 1 cup cold water.
  • Stir in the vinegar, mayonnaise and salt.
  • Refrigerate until the edges begin to become firm.
  • Beat until fluffy.
  • Squeeze liquid from spinach.
  • Add celery, onion, spinach and cottage cheese to gelatin mixture.
  • Lightly grease a 1 quart mold. A ring shape is nice for serving wedges however slices from a bread pan or squares from a 8x8 baking dish are nice too.
  • Spoon spinach mixture into the mold.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and chill over night.
  • Serve cold on a lettuce lined plate.

  1. De-Lite-ful!!! & FUN!!! I have never made something like this jello/spinach salad. I found it to be wonderfully refreshing - LOVED the lemon!!! I added a bit of lemon zest in with the onion and celery...LOVED the bit of crunch in with the tarty creaminess...LOVED the spinach!!! I poured mine into a silicone rose bud shape mold to increase the fun factor...this was a cool surprise on a hot day!!! A winner - THANKS for sharing such a fun and tasty idea!!
