Jell-O Celery Nut Circle gelatin mold recipe


2 packages (3 oz. each) or 1 package (6 oz.) JELL-O Brand Lime Flavor Gelatin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water
1-1/2 cold water
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped nuts


Dissolve gelatin and salt in boiling water. Add cold water and vinegar and chill until slightly thickened. Spoon half of the gelatin into 5-cup ring mold, and chill until set but not firm, about 10 minutes.

Blend sour cream into remaining gelatin; then fold in celery and nuts. Spoon over clear layer in mold. Chill until firm, about 4 hours.

Unmold. Serve with assorted diced fresh fruits and garnish with crisp salad greens, if desired.

  1. Years ago my mother made a jello molded salad where she mixed cream cheese mixed with celery and walnuts and then put it in the middle of the jello ring. Does anyone have a recipe like that. We cannot find it anywhere.
