One of my favorite dishes during the holiday season is my mom’s jello salad. Everyone in my family loves it and I’m pretty sure we would all be disappointed if it didn’t make it on the holiday menu. It includes some of my favorites: strawberries, pineapple, and bananas. It is easy to make and would be perfect side for any meal. For those that are familiar with strawberry pretzel salad, this is it’s rival, and honestly it would be hard to name a favorite between the two because they each offer something a little different. If you are debating what to serve this holiday season, consider this salad…it is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
1 large box of Strawberry-Banana Jello
1 medium to large can crushed pineapple
1 bag frozen strawberries
2 to 3 crushed bananas
Bring the water for the jello to a boil. Add the jello and the frozen strawberries, stirring until thawed. Add pineapple and bananas and mix together.
Place half the mixture into a 9 x 13 pan (or a similar size). Let sit in the refrigerate until mixture is somewhat firm. Add the rest of the jello and store in the refrigerate until set for several hours or overnight.
