This molded gelatin recipe is Jell-O’s take on the classic Waldorf Salad — a turn-of-the-century hotel menu item that featured apples, celery, nuts with a creamy dressing on top. Here, the main components are suspended in strawberry gelatin, and they mayo dressing is replaced with a lighter yogurt version.
Bounce a dinner party. Serve a Waldorf Wheel.
