Molded Strawberry Salad Recipe


1 package (6 ounces) strawberry gelatin 1 cup boiling water 1 cup cold water 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced


1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained 1 cup miniature marshmallows 1 cup whipped topping (like Cool Whip)

Step 1

Prepare the Gelatin Mixture: In a large bowl, dissolve the strawberry gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved.

Step 2

Add Cold Water and Fruits: Once dissolved, stir in 1 cup of cold water. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Incorporate Fruits and Marshmallows: Gently fold in the sliced fresh strawberries, drained crushed pineapple, and miniature marshmallows.

Step 4

Chill the Mixture: Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill the mixture until it begins to thicken, which usually takes about 30-45 minutes.

Step 5

Mold the Salad: Pour the gelatin mixture into a mold or serving bowl of your choice. Refrigerate the mold until the salad is firm.

Step 5

Unmold and Serve: When ready to serve, gently unmold the salad by dipping the mold briefly in warm water and then inverting.
