This is a really easy gelatin salad that makes a pretty presentation for Spring and Summer events! The great thing about this is that it takes just a few ingredients and anyone can do it! The salad itself is also light and very tasty! This is what you will need:
1 cup boiling water
3 oz. pkg. orange gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1/8 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple (do not drain)
1 cup shredded carrots
4 oranges, unpeeled and sliced
1 fresh pineapple, cored and sliced
Pour boiling water over the orange gelatin in a bowl. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add the cold water and stir. Stir in the salt and crushed pineapple. Refrigerate just until it starts to thicken, but has not set up completely. This takes around 1-2 hours.
Once it starts to thicken, stir in the shredded carrots. Pour into a round mold or bowl. Refrigerate until completely set, several hours or overnight.
Unmold onto a large plate or platter! Arrange the orange slices and pineapple slices alternately around the gelatin salad!
Keep refrigerated until ready to serve! If you are serving a large crowd, double the gelatin salad recipe and pour into a deeper mold or bowl! This will serve 4-6 people!
