As a kid, we called it "Pink Stuff." I use strawberry jello with drained fruit cocktail & nuts with it. Read More

I make this several times a year. I use cranberry jello for thanksgiving and just about any other kind I have on hand in the summer. There are never leftovers when I take it to potlucks. Sometimes I add miniature marshmallows to it too. The kids and adults love it. Read More

Simple. Quick. Tasty. Was looking for a salad with no nuts or coconut and here it was. I added some mini marshmallows. I will be making it again and I can tell you before hand that my guys will love it. Read More

Such a delicious salad and it comes together so quickly. I prefer it after it has had time to sit awhile so I usually make it quite a few hours before I plan to serve it even the day before. I prefer the small curd cottage cheese but the large would work just as well. And of course any flavor of gelatin will work. Read More

Extremely simple to make and I had a fan club after the salad was tasted! What is particularly nice is the ability to alter the color and taste easily by simply substituting any flavor of jello as you like. This is a nice blend between desert and salad since the cheese makes it less sweet and amazingly delicious. I made it ahead by 2 days and it was perfect when it hit the table. For those who enjoy these types of salads this is a can't miss dish. Read More

This was a summer staple at our house growing up. We used whatever flavor of Jell-o we had on hand. A super easy side dish that goes great with hot dogs on the grill. Read More
