I've been making a version of this salad for years.Sometimes,I separate the carrots and pineapple and make a 2 layer salad.Sometimes I use orange jello but lime is a family favorite.Sometimes I use water& lime juice and mix the pineapple juice with mayo for a topping. I like the slight zip the lime juice gives the salad ,it's optional. You can also make this salad in a bowl or mold of course.
