I love these family photos from years ago, and this one is of Grandma and Grandpa (on the right) and one of Grandma’s sisters with her husband, and maybe a cousin of theirs. Family was very important to Grandma and her brothers and sisters. They would get together a lot on Sundays, and I can imagine the chatting, the teasing, and the eating that went on at those get-togethers. I don’t have to imagine too hard – I was there at some of them when I was growing up!
Here is another in a long line of salads just called “Salad”. This one is Salad #6. There is a ridiculous number of salads in Grandma’s recipe file, and I’m sure that’s because of all of the family dinners and gatherings she was a part of over the years. She needed to have a huge arsenal of recipes that she could mix and match depending on what and who the gathering was for. This one is especially easy to do and is especially good. It will be great on your springtime table.
This salad is really good!
Here is the recipe as I made it:
2 1/2 cups water
1 (3 oz.) package of Strawberry Jello
2 boxes Tapioca Pudding
1 (12 oz.) Cool Whip
1 package frozen strawberries (partially thawed)
Let the first mixture cool completely so it doesn’t melt the Cool Whip.
It takes awhile to fold in all of the Cool Whip, but you’ll get there eventually.
I used the frozen strawberries that I had in the freezer from a local farm.
This recipe makes a nice big salad – it more than filled this bowl.
There was enough extra salad left (that didn’t fit in the bowl) for dessert that night after dinner, and the main salad was taken to my mom’s for her birthday dinner. This was one of those family dinners, just like Grandma and her family used to have. The consensus from the family on this salad – 6 thumbs up. It’s so delicious, and really convenient. You can have all of the ingredients in your cupboard and freezer ready for anytime. I hope you’ll try this really quick, really easy, and really delicious Salad #6.
