My son and his family were visiting from Florida and he loves Jell-O! When your kids come home you make their favorite foods, right? I had forgotten how good Jell-O salad is! Here in Utah we are famous for our love of Jell-O. Hope this gives you some new ideas.

In a medium bowl add the boiling water to the Jell-O. Stir until completely dissolved. Add the cold water. Refrigerate while you cut up the fruit into bite sized pieces. Add the fruit and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
