Jello Salad Recipe: Crunchy Avocado Salad

Our avocado salad recipe with vegetables 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 pistachios.

Honestly, I would never have thought to make a jello salad with avocado, but I was really surprised at how good it is. It’s a nice mix of flavors.

Add a bit of pimento for color and encase it in a light lime flavored jelly and you have a lovely light salad recipe that is perfect for lunch.

This makes a wonderful vegetable side dish recipe with other of your favorite summer salads.

Jellied salads are so versatile and tasty and best of all, really easy to make.

They always go over well at any get together, whether it is a baby shower, barbecue or on a buffet table.
