Pineapple Sunshine Mold

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.
