Sweet And Satisfying Salads

I always think about my mother, when I create most of my recipes, and when I think about creating a good salad she really comes to mind. When it comes to salads it is a tradition in our lives that we have enjoyed, and it's been one of my pleasures sharing these festive dishes with you and the rest of the nation. My mother drops by kitchen from time to time checking out what's being stirred up on any given day, and if a new sweet salad is on the taste-testing menu, her eyes begin to sparkle..... I can almost here her tummy rumble impatiently, hungry for a mouth-pleasing morsel as soon as possible!

Here in Northern Kentucky they grow a lot of beautiful fruit and those fruits always find their way into my sweet salads. My mother is a particular fan of cremy-sweet dishes starring strawberries, I've told her if she gets my dad to bring her then I will fix them for her, when I do that she is really happy to have a luscious blend that features big strawberries and pineapples mixed in with a tasty strawberry jello, when this comes all together you can see her big smile.

Along with this article is a recipe that I would love to share with you it's one of my mothers favorites so I hope you enjoy it as much as she does.

Strawberry Salad

1- 4-serving package of sugar free strawberry gelatin

1- 4-serving package of sugar free vanilla cook and serve pudding mix

1 cup of water

1 cup (one 8 ounce can) crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice,undrained

2 cups of frozen unsweeten strawberries

3/4 cup of cool whip (sugar free)

In a large saucepan combine dry gelatin, dry pudding mix,undrained pineapple, and water. Stir in the frozen strawberries, cook over medium heat until strawberries thaw and mixture starts to boil, stirring often. Remove from heat, place saucepan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Fold in cool whip, pour mixture into an 8 -by- 8 inch baking dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.

Divide into 6 servings. Make sure you do not add to much cool whip to this mixture until it's really cool, or your or your result will become a watery party pooper.

I really think you will enjoy this great tasting treat as much as my mother and my family, if you do I hope you make it one o your family favorites for years to come........enjoy!
