Green Jello Salad- An Ode to Dad

Green Jello Salad
I'm kind of sitting on a fence with this one. But my Dad really loved it.
If someone forgot to make this during the Holidays, we would hear about it.
I guess the meal just wasn't the same for him without it. grmble..grumble.
I haven't made this since he passed away a decade ago, but...
I think I'm going to put it bake on the Holiday menu, as a homage. 
Who knows, one of the Grandkids might take a shine to it.

2 packages lime jello
1cup plus one cup boiling water
1 can of crushed pineapple-drained
2cups miniature marshmallows
8oz. whipping cream-cold
2cups grated cabbage
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In a bowl add only 1 package of lime jello and 1 cup boiling water. Stir to dissolve.
Add the marshmallows and stir into the hot mixture until they are only partially melted.
Add the pineapple and cabbage, Stir to mix, and refrigerate until set.
In another bowl, Add the remaining package of lime jello and 1cup boiling water. Stir to disslove.
Pour in the whipping cream and mix well. Stir in the walnuts. Pour this mixture onto the set jello mixture.Refrigerate until set.


  1. Do you realize, we havent had this in over 10 years? I have to say, I dont miss it lol. It always scared me when I was little lol. I dont know why. I bet the kids would love it though! :)

  2. LOL, I sort of like it, but Dad would finish the bowl in a few days.I was going through my recipes, and realized, I've never made this for the Grandkids. So prepare yourself for the next get together!
