I look forward to spring every year. The colors that arrive in the usual brown dessert are incredible. The spring flowers bloom and the mountains, sides of the roads, and yards are filled with yellows, oranges, reds, and purples. It’s such a beautiful site and worth a trip out of the city to see.
Of course, springtime means school is almost over for the year, my son’s birthday, and Easter. Easter is such an important part of my faith and we always celebrate with a big family supper. I’m slowly taking over the role of hostess for our family which means I finally get to set the menu!
And this Spring Jello Salad is just what our buffet needs for cool and sweet finish to a ham supper. It’s also a great side dish for a potluck or BBQ or just because you want to surprise the family with a fun dessert middle of the week.
I love adding the colored marshmallows, but if you can’t find them just use mini white marshmallows. Don’t those colored marshmallows make the dish though??? It really makes this a beautiful dish for spring time.
Don’t freak out when you see the ingredient list…I promise this jello salad is delicious, cool, and creamy. It would make a great summer dessert too on a hot night. My Layered Blueberry Jello Salad is a great option too, make them individual jars for a fun dessert.
