Jody’s Food Memories

December 27, 2021 | Jody Gatewood

With only a few more days left in December, today I’m wrapping up our series sharing our food memories.

When I think of the holidays, a food that comes to mind is the jello that my mom makes for our Christmas dinner. Though the other food we have at Christmas changes year to year, the jello is a staple on the table. And it was this past Christmas too!

The bottom layer of the salad is yellow and is a mixture of crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and cream cheese. The second layer is green jello and the third layer is red jello. Every year my mom makes the salad in the same glass bowl so you can see the different colored layers. The glass bowl is as much a part of the tradition as the jello. The color of the salad brightens up the table and adds some holiday cheer!

What salads or side dishes are part of your holiday meals? Share with us on our Facebook page.
