This is one of my aunt Nancy’s favorite summer salad recipes, and I have to say it is now one of mine!

She made this molded lime jello salad for a recent family get together and it disappeared very, very quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1 - 3 ounce package lime jello powder
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots, grated

Method

Step 1

Stir jelly powder in boiling water until dissolved. Whisk in sour cream and juice.Stir in 1 1/2 cups grated carrot. Turn into an oiled 4 cup mold.

Step 2

Refrigerate at least until firm, about 2 hours. If possible, stir about 1/2 hour into the chilling, to mix the carrots through the jello.

Step 3

Serves 4 people but can easily be multiplied to serve more.

Tips:

  • If you are feeding a group, multiply everything by 5 and it will fill a standard bundt pan. The bundt pan molds it into a beautiful shape too.
  • Use sugar free jelly powder and light sour cream to cut the calories if you wish, but cut down on the amount of water by just a tiny bit.
  • Try different combinations. For example, lemon jello might taste wonderful with well drained pineapple pieces. Cherry jello with pieces of maraschino cherries?

Note that the image shows a double recipe.

When the weather gets warm it’s time for something cool.

This carrot and jello salad recipe isn’t just a summer salad though. It works beautifully for any buffet table or family dinner.

The ingredients may sound odd together but I encourage you to try it. It’s really delicious!
