Apricot Jello Salad, My Gram’s Recipe


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!

I've been a stay at home Mom for many years...Have earned a PhD in life experience. My oldest is 33 and my youngest is 15. This year, I adopted my 5 year old Granddaughter. On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Please visit and subscribe to my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWn_VTumL1QLpukYEamtzcg. Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. I recently had a the wonderful opportunity to submit my music to Warner Bros Records for consideration to the label! They liked my music but requested that I get in the game by acquiring 20k followers. Appearantly, that what it takes to get signed to a major label! Sure WB, I'm working on it! You have to have a huge following to land a recording contract. Gone are the days where a label can and will make you...
