You will love the way this Jello turns out because it fairly fool proof and even the simplest of chefs can handle it.
I also think Jello is a great first recipe to introduce your kiddos to when teaching them to cook.
It involves measuring, boiling water and patience– all things you have to learn!
What can I serve with Jello Salad?
Jello is pretty universal and can be served along side any entree.
I love eating it at a BBQ or potluck but you can eat it anytime!
Here are a few of our favorite dishes to serve alongside Lime Jello Salad.
How long will Jello Salad keep in the fridge? If properly stored in an airtight container it should be good for 1-2 days.
Can I make Jello Salad ahead of time? Yes. I would recommend making it several hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to mesh. Be sure to serve within 24 hours. If doing so, put the nuts on right before serving.
Can I double this recipe? Always!
Can you freeze Jello Salad? No, please don’t freeze this dish for later consumption. It will become too mushy to enjoy later on.
Can I leave out the coconut flakes? Yes, you can.
I have never tried a different flavor of pudding so I would stick with vanilla. If you do experiment be sure to leave a comment letting me know how it turns out!
If you don’t have lime jello you can try a different flavor- but just don’t call it Lime Jello Salad!
