Carrot Pineapple Gelatin Salad Recipe

Carrot Pineapple Gelatin Salad

 1 package lemon gelatin powder
4 ounces crushed pineapple -- canned; drained
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup chopped walnuts -- or pecans
Lettuce Leaves -- for serving
Dollop of nonfat mayonnaise -- for topping

Prepare the gelatin according to the package directions., but reduce the amount
of cold water by about 1/8 - 1/4, to accommodate the liquid from the carrots and
pineapple. (If they are not very moist, then do not reduce the water. You may
also use some or all of the liquid from the pineapple, if you prefer.)

Pour the gelatin mixture into a square glass Pyrex casserole dish. Gently stir
in the grated carrots, crushed pineapple, and chopped nuts (if using). Stir
until well mixed. Place in refrigerator until set.

To serve, slice the gelatin salad into squares or rectangles and place on a
lettuce leaf. You may top with a dollop of nonfat mayonnaise for a more
finished look.
