  • Mix dry Jello with boiling water with a whisk to dissolved and stir in cold water.
  • Let set in fridge till syrupy (can speed this up by setting bowl in another bowl filled with ice water for about 20 minutes).
  • Add the diced apples, celery, and nuts.
  • Pour into a glass dish (can be a bowl, 7x11, oval dish- a 9x13 is makes the squares too thin).

  1. It turned out beautiful like Annacia's photo. I too cubed the jello and served it in a beautiful crystal bowl. I however, omitted the celery since we're not celery eaters. I used raspberry jello and it was delicious and beautiful. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
  2. Good old fashioned jello salad that is just right for summer enjoyment. I made a 1/2 recipe and still used the full 2 cups of liquid ask for on the package that included the lemon juice and it set up very firm. This is cool and refreshing but even though I used the 1/2 cup walnut bits their flavor seemed to get lost. I think that a bit of cinnamon would help round it out. I used sugar free raspberry jello and a red delicious apple.


Hi everybody, I’ve been using “Zaar” website for the last year but ready to commit myself to adding my two cents worth (including some photos). I live with my DH and two great kids and one crazy dog in the foothills of Colorado. We have a great view with lots deer and red rocks. I come from a food-loving family, including my nearby sister who is willing to discuss "what's for dinner" first thing in the morning! I’ve loved cooking every since I was a teenager. I don’t work so I have lots of time to cook my latest craving. I love to try and duplicate dishes I enjoy from restaurants. I have a lot of cookbooks, but now use mostly “Zaar” recipes and from “Cooks Illustrated.” I love reading cookbooks (library) and like the old classics from Betty Crocker to backs of food labels. I love to research lots of recipes before I decide which one to make.
