Ingredients to Make Orange Carrot Gelatin Salad

  • orange flavored gelatin
  • boiling water
  • ice cubes
  • coarsely grated carrots
  • canned pineapple tidbits
  • canned mandarin oranges

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Prepare your ingredients.

Peel and grate the carrots. Using a colander, drain the pineapple tidbits and mandarin oranges.

Be sure to save the juices that you drain for use later in a beverage or your choosing.

Boil water in a tea kettle.

While waiting for the water to boil, place the orange gelatin in a medium-sized serving bowl.

Measure out the boiling water and pour into the bowl. Stir the mixture with a wire whisk until the gelatin has completely dissolved.

Add ice cubes to the gelatin and stir until the ice has melted.

This is to ensure a quick set and is important for this recipe.

Adding the carrots and fruit to the Gelatin Salad

Carefully stir into the liquid gelatin mixture the grated carrots and the drained fruit.

Cover with plastic wrap and place the bowl in the refrigerator to set. Allow the salad to set at least 8 hours or overnight.

It takes a while for this salad to completely set due to the citrus in it. If time allows, I like to allow it to refrigerate overnight, which makes it a nice salad to make for early preparation.

This gelatin salad will serve 6-8 people.
