By request, I am making jelly salad for Easter dinner. This is no ordinary jelly salad. It's more like dessert but heck, on top of all that pie and chocolate, what's another spoonful of sugar. Sweet!
In our family we call this "pink stuff" but it's good with orange or lemon jell-o, too. It will be served with the ham, in other words, the main course. Get a jump on dessert...
1 box strawberry jell-o powder
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cool whip
2 cups mini marshmallows, plain or coloured
1. Stir jell-o with boiling water until powder is dissolved.
2. Cool and
refrigerate until Jell-o is jiggly but not set, about 45 minutes. Check periodically as your fridge may be colder than mine.
3. With a rubber spatula or electric mixer,
beat in cool whip until well incorporated.
4. Stir in marshmallows.
Refrigerate until mealtime.
