Jello Salad Recipe:
Our vegetable and avocado salad recipe is one of those easy to make and tasty Jello salad recipes.
I love jello salads.
This one combines the smooth richness of avocado with the freshness of crisp green pepper, the tang of minced onions and the crunch of chopped nuts, in this case pecans.
Prep time: ,|
6 ounces lime flavoured gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups mashed avocado
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup diced green pepper
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup chopped pimento
2 teaspoons minced onion
Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Add the avocado and mayonnaise. Mix well. Chill until the mixture is the consistency of an unbeaten egg white. Remove from the refrigerator and stir in the green pepper, pecans, pimento and minced onion. Pour the mixture into a lightly oiled 5 1/2 cup mold.
Chill until the salad is set. Unmold onto lettuce leaves. Garnish with additional pimento for added color if you desire.
