Ginger Ale Salad

This gem of a recipe came from the mysterious box of recipes, that the spiced apple jello came from last month.  When my parents were driving through on the way to my sister’s house last month, this seemed like a great way to add a little gelatin/protein to our meal in a way that was fun and unexpected.  My dad loves lime jello with pears, and this seemed like a possible comparable jello salad.


Ginger Ale Salad

2 pkgs lemon jello
1 cup boiling water
3 c ginger ale
1 c nut meats, ground fine
1 c pineapple tidbits
1 c grapefruit sections, white grapes, or cherries
1 c orange sections (cut)
3 Tbsp crystallized ginger

Dissolve the jello in the boiling water.  When cool, add the remaining ingredients.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with watercress greens
