This is basically a "dump" type salad in that all the ingredients are eventually mixed together.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Mix first 3 ingredients together well and chill. Cook rice until tender and cool. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add rice and crushed pineapple with juice. Drain fruit cocktail and add to rice/pineapple mixture. The first 3 combined ingredients can be mixed in last with the fresh fruit. Pour into bowl and let jell. The salad is topped with the whipped cream after it has started to jell

This is one of our favorite dishes to keep on hand in the refrigerator. There's always room for Jell-O. It can be used as a salad served with mayonnaise or cottage cheese or as a dessert served with whipped cream. It's so good, it really does not need a topping.

Total Time: 30 minutes to prepare and 3-4 hours to congeal.

Yield: 9-12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 15 oz. cans fruit cocktail
  • 1 large box (6 oz.) Cherry Jell-O

Steps:

  1. Drain fruit cocktail and save the juice. Add 2 cups of boiling water to Jell-O and stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add 1 cup of fruit cocktail juice and 3/4 cup cold water. Stir well.
  2. Cool Jell-O until slightly congealed. I use a quick method by placing the Jell-O in a medium mixing bowl and then placing the bowl into a large mixing bowl with ice and water. It takes 10-15 minutes for a soft congeal. I test it by putting a piece of fruit cocktail in the Jell-O and if it does not float, it is ready to add the remainder of fruit cocktail.
  3. Add fruit cocktail and pour into 2 quart dish. Chill 3-4 hours or until firm.

I don't know why they call Jello and fruit a salad. This is one of my favorites, though. I would call it a dessert, it is so good.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Prepare Jello according to package directions. Add the pineapple, bananas, nuts, and cherries. When it is starting to gel, mix well and chill in a serving dish.

Prepare Dream Whip as directed on package.

In a medium size saucepan, mix pineapple juice reserved from can, the egg, sugar, and flour, and cook like a pudding, on medium low heat, stirring often, until it thickens like a pudding. Cool, and then combine with the Dream Whip. Spread this on top of the chilled Jello salad.

The topping makes the salad really special.

Servings: 10 -12
Time:15 Minutes Preparation Time
10 Minutes Cooking Time
