How-to Unmold Gelatin Salads
Loosen the gelatin from the top edge of mold by gently pulling the gelatin away from edge with a moistened finger. Then dip the mold up to its rim in a sink or large pan of warm water for a few seconds or until edges begin to release from the side of the mold.
Place a plate over the mold and invert. Carefully lift the mold from the salad.
