Jell-O Salad

Jell-O Salad Picture

1. Make Jell-O according to the package directions, but use only 1/2 the water. Place it in the refrigerator to gel, and WATCH IT CLOSELY, so it doesn't get too hard. Because I'm usually in a hurry (running late) when I make this I quite often place some ice cubes in the measuring cup with the water, this makes the water colder and the Jell-O will set quicker.

2. Shred then drain the cucumber with skin, I'll sometimes double up on the cucumber, and remove the seeds prior to draining it. Peel, then shred the carrot long ways. Drain the Pineapple and mix all in with Jell-O.

3. Chill and serve. Be sure to start this early, or the night before, because it'll take a while to set up.

Ron's Note:
It's important to remember to drain both the Pineapple and the Cucumber before adding it to the Jell-O or you'll end up with too much liquid, and it won't set.
