Jello Salads…

I’m a huge fan of Jello salads, all of them, Perfection,  Orange with Mandarin Oranges, Lime with Pineapple and Cream Cheese, but my favorite of all is the one Mother made when I was a child.  In fact, I whipped up a batch this morning and it’s chilling in the fridge.  I think she originally made hers with raspberry jello, but I’m a cherry girl, so that’s the way I make it.  It’s so simple, here’s the recipe.

Mom’s Apple Pecan Jello Salad
1 large package sugar free Cherry Jello
1-1/2 cups boiling water
1-1/2 cups cold water
2 apples cut into small dice – I use one of my favorite kitchen gadgets for this, my Williams-Sonoma Vegetable Chopper, the full size one, not the mini
chopped pecans
chopped celery (Mother always put this in, I omit it)
Chill all ingredients, occasionally stirring it when it begins to set up so that the apple mixture is distributed evenly throughout the Jello.  This stuff is really addictive!
