"Old-fashioned carrot salad made with lemon Jell-O and pineapple. Grandma didn't specify the amount of carrots. You probably can't use too much!"

I love this salad and have been making it for years!! It is great if you are on a diet and use sugar-free jello. Substituting orange jello for lemon is my favorite. I also mix all the ingredients together at the same time (not chilling the jello then adding the pineapple and carrots. Do not use store bought shredded carrots. Shred them yourself on a grater (better texture than in a food processor).

This is very similar to a recipe my mother always made called "Perfection Salad." She learned it in home ec class in the early '40's. She always used lime jello, and besides the carrots and pineapple, she would sometimes add in some finely chopped celery, or some shredded cabbage. One of my favorites from my childhood! Thanks for sharing it, Asteng.

Great recipe. Super easy. My Grandma always uses orange jello. This is always a holiday favorite as the bright color pairs well with other foods.
