Carrot Salad

This was one of my favourite jello based salads that my grandmother used to make and it’s a fun recipe that you can let the kids get involved in too.  I have seen this done with raisins added in, but I am not a fan of the lil’ buggers, so you won’t see them here.  You also won’t see the walnuts that my grandmother used to throw in because I don’t like the crunch they give to the salad, it just seems out of place.  This stores well overnight and is a great dish for pot lucks.


1     3 oz. box orange Jell-O

1 c. carrots, grated

1     15 oz. can crushed pineapple

  • Bring one cup of water to boil over medium to high heat.
  • Stir in gelatin packet until thoroughly dissolved.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Drain pineapple juice into a liquid measuring cup.
  • Add water to pineapple juice to make 2 cups of liquid total.
  • Stir into Jell-O mixture.
  • Pour Jell-O liquid into casserole dish, 13 x 9.
  • Stir in crushed pineapple and carrots until well blended.
  • Chill until set.
  • Serve.
