Family Jell-O Salad

One of my favorite dishes at every holiday gathering is my mom’s Jell-O salad. We have it at Christmas and Thanksgiving every year. Growing up I am always excited for holiday dinners because I know this dish will be on the table. This dish is easy to make and good for any time of the year. With summer coming soon, it can be a sweet side dish or a great dessert after dinner.

I hope you enjoy the recipe below.
