Welcome to Bonita’s Kitchen!
Today we will be making Orange Jelly Salad, this is a delicious salad we would make years ago to have with our Cold Plates.

2- 85g Packs of Orange jell-o or jelly
2- Cups boiling water
1 1/2- Cups orange juice
1/2- Cup white vinegar
4- Tbsp. lemon juice
Pinch sea salt
1- (398ml) Tin pears cube or 2- (10oz) Tins of mandarin oranges, drained
2- Cups crushed or tidbit pineapples, drained
3 to 4 Medium carrots, grated


1 Combine in a large bowl  jelly, hot water, orange juice, vinegar, lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt, mix well.
2 Stir until dissolved, then put in the fridge for 45 minutes to 1 hour or less until slightly thickened.
3 Remove from fridge and add the following ingredients, grated carrot, pineapple, pears or oranges fold together until evenly combined.
4 Pour into a mould or bowl of choice, place back into the fridge let set overnight.
5 When ready to serve remove from the fridge place a plate on top and slowly flip over the mould, tap lightly to release from mould or bowl. 
6 If using a silicone pan pull the side open a little after you flipped it over, if using a glass bowl you may need to place bowl in warm water for a minute or less then flip over into a plate or platter. 

Helpful Hints: You can use any colour of jello and use any type of ingredients that you like to put in your salad. For example: If you want to make a veggie jelly salad, use green jello and mixed vegetables. If you like to make a christmas or Valentine salad use red jello and cherries, strawberries, or fruit of choice. Can you see where I’m going with this, make it your own and lets make new traditions with Bonita’s Kitchen. ©
