This healthy gelatine salad is great for a snack, dessert, or side dish.
3/4 cup orange juice
1-1/2 envelopes unflavored gelatine (3 tsp.)
8oz. can crushed pineapple, unsweetened, undrained
6oz. can (3/4 cup) pineapple juice, unsweetened
1 orange, peeled, chopped
1 banana, sliced
1/2 cup seedless grapes, cut in half (We prefer the red ones)
3 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds (optional)
In a small saucepan, whisk gelatine into orange juice to soften; let stand about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together pineapple, pineapple juice, orange, banana, and grapes in a mixing bowl. To dissolve gelatine, heat to a full boil while stirring constantly with wire whisk; remove from heat. Blend honey into dissolved gelatine and combine with remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour into 8″ quare pan, salad bowl, gelatine mold or individual serving dishes; chill in fridge until set.
Note: We like to make this using individual serving dishes. This recipe makes 10 snack-size servings. When we have poured the mixture into the serving dishes, before it sets, we sprinkle the nuts on top. Just a few on each dish.
