Every year we have an annual BBQ at our house for a lot of our friends before the winter sets in. I make the meats & spinach dip & everyone else brings a side dish. This is one a friend of mine brought this year. Must try.

How To Make jello / veggie casserole

  • 1
    Chop all of the veggies fine, about the size of pencil erasers. I grate the carrots on cheese grater, then chop if necessary.
  • 2
    In large mixing bowl, dissolve jello in boiling water. While hot, mix mayonnaise & cream cheese or cottage cheese in .I use cream cheese. Add veggies & mix in.
  • 3
    Pour into an 8x8 pan or small casserole. Refrigerate until set. Keeps for a long time in fridge.
  • 4
    Garnish with lemon zest & lemon peel if desired.
  • 5
    Note: May be doubled. If doubled, place in a 9 x 13 glass cake pan or larger casserole dish. Also, for this picture, the original recipe calls for 1 c. of each veggie. I used 1/2 c. onion, 1/2 c. bell pepper,1 c. celery , 1c. carrot & the apple. The revision I have listed above is much better. It just had too much veggies in it.
