Reviews for Simple Lime Gelatin Salad
"Great recipe! This was quick and easy to assemble and oh, so good! The possibilities and variations with this recipe are endless! I wasn't able to find lime sherbet so I used orange Jell-O and orange sherbet and folded in mandarin oranges. My family often request me to make this salad for "special occasion' dinners; it has become a family favorite."
"Very tasty - love that it is easy to make & comes together quickly. A great side dish for any holiday meal. Next time I will try it with orange gelatin and sherbet & will add mandarin oranges."
"Always a hit wherever I take it -- been making for YEARS! Try adding a can of crushed pineapple (instead of sherbet -- I might try both together though) and you do not need to worry about draining. Also, can add some mini-marshmallows -- be creative."
"Very easy and grandkids loved it"
"Very light smooth and creamy! I really liked it. I didn't use a mold. I just put it in a bowl and we dipped it out."
"I have not made this yet, however my Mom did and it was excellent! I had to have the recipe so I can make it too!! (The only thing she did different is to use sugar-free gelatin and sugar-free whipped topping since we both need to watch our sugar.)"
