But I'm just wondering what everyone imagines when they think of Jello Salad? Do you think it has to have cool whip? Does it have to be sweet? Have to include fruit? Marshmallows? And finally, do you think that it has to be made with soft jello or can it be made with hard jello like jello jigglers? There are no guidelines for this and I want to be original in this. I was thinking maybe I would make a jello "salad" using jello and fruits and other toppings to make something that really looks like a green salad. Does that sound lame?
