Today I am going to share a traditional, family-favorite!
We love this Lemon Whip Salad; growing it up no Thanksgiving was complete without it.
It's light, airy, and perfectly lemony. I'm not much one for Jell-o "salads" but this is my favorite, and it is fun to make--I usually make it for dessert. ;)
Give it a go--you won't regret it. :)
Lemon Whip Salad
1 small lemon Jell-O
¾ c. boiling water
1 c. sugar
¼ c. lemon juice
1 can chilled evaporate milk
zest of one lemon
- Dissolve Jell-O in hot water; add lemon juice and lemon zest. Allow the Jell-O to partially set.
- Whip the evaporate milk with an electric mixer and slowly add the sugar.
- Fold the Jell-O into the whipped milk.
- Line the bottom of a pan or glass bowl with crushed graham crackers. Pour Jell-O mixture over and let set in the refrigerator for a few hours. If desired, you can layer the crackers and Jell-O and put some crushed crackers on top.
