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!
