  • 1 (3 ounce) package lemon-flavored gelatin mix (such as Jell-O®)

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained and juice reserved

  • 1 ½ tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • ½ cup cold water, or as needed

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard, or to taste

  • 1 cup finely chopped cabbage

  • ½ cup chopped celery

  • 1 cup chopped cooked ham


  1. Dissolve lemon gelatin in boiling water in a large bowl. Pour reserved pineapple juice and white wine vinegar into a measuring cup; add enough cold water to measure 1 cup. Stir water-juice mixture into gelatin mixture; refrigerate until cold and beginning to set, about 30 minutes.

  2. Stir mayonnaise and spicy brown mustard together in a bowl; whisk mayonnaise mixture into cooled lemon gelatin mixture until smooth. Gently fold cabbage, ham, celery, and reserved pineapple into gelatin. Transfer mixture into a ring-shaped gelatin mold.

  3. Chill in the refrigerator until firmly set, about 4 hours.

  4. To serve, dip the gelatin mold into hot water to loosen the sides; place a plate on top of the mold, invert, and gently lift the mold from salad.
