Are you looking for a fun and tasty way to add fruit and vegetables to you children’s diet? Here is a great way. Try your kids out on our Sunburst Orange, Carrot and Jell-O Salad. Whatever you do don’t call it a salad or tell them it is healthy. Rather, tell that is fun and tasty.
1 Package; Orange Jell-O
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 fresh Sunburst Navel Orange, segmented.
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
1 cup grated carrots
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Cool Whip Dessert Topping
Prepare Jell-O according to package directions
You have two options at this point to make a molded dessert or a tossed salad.
Chill the Jell-O in a shallow pan and chill until set in refrigerator, after set (about four hours) slice the Jell-O into small cubes. Slice the orange segments into thirds. Combined orange, carrots with Jell-O cubes in a glass bowl and toss contents. (A common variation is to mix some of the Cool Whip in the mixture) Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Just prior to serving sprinkle with the fresh orange juice (add nuts, optional) and top with dollops of Cool Whip.
Follow package directions to start the Jell-O. Put the bowl in the refrigerator until the gelatin thickens. This will take approximately 90 minutes, and the gelatin will have the consistency of unbeaten egg whites. Select your favorite Jell-O mold. Pour Jell-O mixture into the mold. Combine oranges segments, (Slice into thirds), orange juice with carrots (optional nuts) and distribute evenly into the mold. Take care not to add extra liquid with the fruit. This could prevent the gelatin from setting. Return the mold of gelatin and fruit to the refrigerator until the gelatin sets completely. This will take about 4 hours.
Serve and enjoy.
