Shelly's Mother's Delightful Salad...and One of Winkki's Loves
500 mins (prep 20, cooking 480)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
I adopted this recipe after my friend, Shelly, left the site. She is very proud of this recipe and swears that the shredded cheddar MAKES the salad. Our dear friend, winkki, is also fond of this and claims that it is the only jello salad that she will eat because she remembers her grandmother making it. May jello live on for all of us! Shelly's original comments are: "I make fun of jello molds but this is NOT a jello mold! It is a little weird but my mother makes this every year around the holidays and I love it. Sorry the amounts are kinda vague. Hope they suffice. It's kinda like a big bowl of dreamsicle! (sorta) Cook time includes my minimal chill time. So good! Also, I'm sure you can probably use INSTANT vanilla pudding but my dear mother to this day always uses the kind ya have to cook. Go figure."
