Cut Glass Salad

SOOOOO easy but needs time to refrigerate!

Unfortunately,
I forgot to tell Judy to cut the cold water in 1/2 so our jello
was a little too liquid to hold the cubed shapes.
Although mine LOOKED like soup, it was still super DELICIOUS.



*1 box jell-o
*1 container cool whip
*1 can mandarin oranges
*1 can crushed pineapple
*coconut flakes

nice bowl/serving dishes








Step 1:
Drain 1 can of pineapple and 1 can mandarin oranges,
removing as much liquid as you can from the pineapple
***Let sit to the side in a strainer while jello sets.

Step 2:
Sprinkle fruit with coconut (amount of your choice)

Step 3:
Make any colour jello package
with 1 cup boiling water and 1/2 a cup of cold water.
then REFRIGERATE well.

Step 3:
In large serving bowl mix 1 almost thawed container
of cool whip/no name whip topping to the fruit
DO NOT mix hard! just gently

Step 4:
Cut your jello with a knife into cubes
and drop into cool whip/fruit mixture.






Serve as an appetizer or dessert!

Makes 6-8 large servings










PS: 

We use the mandarin orange juice and pineapple juice
for the dinner too!
In a jug pour the liquid you reserve from the fruit,
add ice and 1 bottle of gingerale
for a fancy tropical dinner drink.

I like to serve them with maraschino cherries too!





"Bon Appetit!"
