Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The flavors of this fruity jello salad really shine through and it is an enjoyable tasty dish, making it perfect to serve during Spring/Easter. However, I realized that I only had 3 oz. of lemon jello and had a panic moment because it was late Saturday night before Easter. Luckily, I had 1 mango flavored jello in my cupboard so I used it to compensate for the 6 oz. measure. I also added strawberries to the fruit mix. Stupidly, I warmed the outer mold pan, to help the salad slide out easily, but it made it melt, making the salad fall apart – My Bad and didn’t have the energy to pipe the whipped cream mix to make it look nice, therefore sorry for the not so nice pic. Thank you Dienia for sharing. Made it for FYC.
