Shrimp Salad with a Lemon Jello Side Dish

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me back in the 60's by a lady at my church when I lived in Michigan. Rosalie served it for holidays and at church social and card parties. Then she gave it to me to put in my cook book " Kitchen Chatter and Friends" book 2. So that all could have this recipe I post it here. She would serve it with this lemon jello salad on the side. This is so awesome.

  1. Jello Salad:Believe me this is awesome as a side with the shrimp salad.
    Dissolve jello in boiling water; stir in the cold water. Chill for about 1 1/2 hours; just until it jells a little.

    Beat the cream cheese until creamy and add the pudding mixture and the partially set jello for about 2 minutes. Fold in remaining ingredients and pour into mold or bowl and chill until set.
