Carrot-Pineapple Gelatin Salad

"My grandma frequently fixed the salad when she was asked to bring a dish to a family gathering," writes Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. "Now I make it often since it's a favorite of our kids. It's a fun way for them to get a fruit and vegetable."

    Our family always made it with regular orange jello and called it Sunshine Salad. Delicious either way.
