Pineapple Jello Rings

Pat Duran


This is one of the recipes from "Kitchen Chatter Book "
I love the idea of this individual salad- it always looks so elegant on the plate with the cottage cheese. This will be great to serve with a scoop of sherbet or ice cream for a dessert dish too! You can use any flavor Jello to match the holiday season. This one is for St. Patrick's Day; use cherry or strawberry for Valentine's Day!

10 slice
pineapple in a can
3 oz
pkg. lime jello
1 lb
container small curd cottage cheese
lettuce leaves or
pineapple sherbet or vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Drain pineapple juice into a saucepan. Leave rings in the can; set aside.
Boil juice, add jello and stir until dissolved.
Slowly pour jello over pineapple rings in the can.
Tap can on counter-its hot so use pot holder; this is to remove and bubbles.
Refrigerate until jello is set.
Just before serving, run hot water over outside of can or remove other end of can with can opener; like you would for cranberry jelly.
When Jello is loose enough to slide out of can onto plate slice between rings and arrange on lettuce leaves in a circle.
Fill center of plate with cottage cheese, sprinkle with a little apple pie spice.
If using as a dessert place each sliced ring on individual dessert plate or dish and top with a scoop of pineapple sherbet or vanilla ice cream drizzle with caramel topping.
