Mother's Congealed Carrot Salad
This congealed carrot salad recipe is one that my mother used to make quite frequently when we were growing up. It is a healthy addition to any meal as it contains nutritious vegetables and fruit in a gelatin base.
If one is concerned about sugar intake, you can purchase the jello made with sugar substitute.
1 package lemon jello
1 small can crushed pineapple
5 to 6 carrots, grated
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
Dissolve jello in 1 cup boiling water. Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Use all of the reserved juice and fill with water to make 2nd cup of liquid. Add the vegetables and refrigerate.
This is pretty if put into a ring mold. When set it can be unmolded and put on to a bed of leafy spinach or garnished with parsley.
If serving individual portions and it was not put into a ring mold, it can be dressed up by serving a scoop of it in a lettuce leaf.

My Grandma's Strawberry Jello Mold
This strawberry jello mold recipe is a real crowd pleaser!
Everyone raves about this special treat and always asked my grandmother to make it again and again.
I personally think of it as more of a dessert.
It is scrumptious!
(It makes a large portion but the recipe can easily be halved).

2 cups water
1 pint frozen strawberries
2 ripe bananas
1 tall can crushed pineapple

***Note...This recipe can easily be made lower calorie by substituting sugar free jello and using low fat or no fat sour creme.
