Lemon Lime Jello Salad


This salad is often referred to as the “Green & Yellow Salad” in our house.  It is not everyone’s favourite, but some love it!  I brought this salad to our Thanksgiving gathering tonight, and only a serving or two was left!


Again, the younger crowd had never seen a Jello Mold…  But, every North American feast needs Jello! 😉  I omitted the Olives on 1 half, and even a lot of Grandma’s sons do not remember Olives in her ‘Green & Yellow Salad’.  Truthfully, the salads are kind of fun – I may start making more!

Here are a few pictures to remember (or imagine) from a time gone by 🙂
