My Gram made this at Easter when I was a child. I know seems strange with the sharp cheddar cheese. Trust me the sharp cheddar makes this great!
Easy to make too.
1 lrg box of orange jello
1 small can of apricot halves
1 small can of crushed pineapple
1 cup of mini marshmallows
1 small tub of Cool Whip
Grated sharp cheddar cheese
Open cans of fruit and drain into a measuring cup. Add water to make 2 cups of liquid.
Bring liquid to a boil.
Add liquid to the packaged orange jello and stir well. About two minute.
Cut up the apricot halves into medium chunks. Combine with the crushed pineapple
Add both fruits to the jello.
Add mini marshmallows, they will float to the top and thats fine!
Chill for several hours in the fridge.
Top with a generous amount of Cool Whip
Sprinkle the sharp cheddar on top.
Return to fridge for a few hours
Serve and enjoy!
This salad pairs well with ham. I have even served this at Thanksgiving with turkey!
Trying to keep family traditions alive even if they seem strange. The strange ones are the best!
#bring jello salads back!
