Very Unique Jello Salad

Debi Newton


The topping is very unique and different you will love it!

I personally only like bananas and marshmellows in my jello however people like different fruits and all work fine =) Topping is different but makes this recipe good for a side dish or dessert. Another recipe I am always asked for when I take it anywhere and I love that it is different and always enjoyed by many =) This recipe was given to me by my Aunt many years ago and I have never seen it anywhere so I wanted to share. Try it its so easy and can be decorated so many ways. I use pineapple and pecans on top sometimes as well =)
