The original recipe is from the “50 Year St. Croix County Cookbook”. It is also excellent eaten fresh.
A WECN Magazine reader had requested a salad that contained strawberry jello, cranberries, and orange peel. This might be the one — it’s an old recipe from the 1960s, but a good one.
This recipe is in response to Amanda Tutor from Ashland in the February 2020 issue of WECN. It is a great recipe, and I have made it many times. You could use strawberry, cherry, or raspberry gelatin and all would be very good. P.S. My family lived in Ashland for 12 years before being transferred to Eau Claire.
This is a delicious combination of flavors. You may substitute black-eyed peas for one of the bean choices. It’s an especially nice side dish on “meatless” days, as it provides lots of protein! (And as a summertime picnic dish, it keeps well in the heat!)
