Please Boil 1 – 12oz. Can 7-Up

Ever been pressed to come up with a salad recipe for a last-minute potluck invitation? No problemo! …so long as you have a trusty little box of J-E-L-L-O on hand.

Just rummage through your pantry and/or fridge and grab the first 2 – 5 items you see. Set these delectable ingredients to the side. Then, boil 3/4 to 1 cup of any – yes, any – consumable liquid you have on hand. Combine all ingredients, stir and refrigerate to set.

This handy-dandy little tip is brought to you after an intensive survey of some very fine salad recipes. The most creative of which, was…

Jello-Ice Cream Salad (creative use of punctuation, ehe?)

  • 3 (3 oz.) pkg. lime Jello
  • 2 (12 oz.) cans 7-Up
  • 1/2 gal. vanilla ice cream

Boil 7-Up and add Jello to dissolve. Then Add ice cream; blend well. Refrigerate to set.

Ah, but my favorite part of this recipe was the tag line: “Try it–you will like it.

green eggs and ham

For the life of me, all I could think about was Green Eggs and Ham

“You do not like them.
So you say.
Try them! Try them!
And you may.
Try them and you may, I say.”

As for myself, I still have not tried Jello-Ice Cream Salad. Just can’t get past the boiled 7-Up. Oh yeah, and there’s the whole part about intentionally melting your ice cream.
