Whipped Carrot Salad

"Carrots and pineapple give this fluffy gelatin salad its refreshing taste," says Jean Smith of Crossville, Tennessee. "A friend gave me the recipe. I serve this side dish often, whether I'm entertaining guests or my family. Lovely and light, it's perfect with almost any menu."

    This is excellent!!! I also made it with sugar free gelatin. It is a real treat. I will be making this often this coming season. Highly recommend trying this to anyone!

    Our family loves this salad. I make this recipe frequently with two minor changes. I use sugar free gelatin and almost double the carrots. Most of the time by doubling the carrots, I only need to make 1/2 of the rest of the recipe. It is more healthful and filling. You know it is a salad, BUT you feel like you are eating a dessert!
