Pineapple Coconut Molded Salad

Although I don't make them often,  every now and then it's sort of fun to make a nice molded salad.  This one, Pineapple and Coconut Molded Salad, which I made for our potluck lunch at church a few weeks ago, was different and delicious.   I found the recipe in an older issue of Country Woman magazine, where it was a winner in a contest for gelatin recipes.  Made with unflavored gelatin so the nice flavors of pineapple and coconut are really showcased, it was a hit.

I served this as a dessert and filled the center with a mixture of pineapple tidbits and mango cubes to add more color and tropical flavor.  If you also enjoy making a nice molded salad from time to time, this is a nice summery one to try!


  1. How pretty....molded salads were the rage once upon a time. Glad to see them making a come back!!

  2. Yes, this gelatin contest was quite amazing. The food editors were so surprised at what a response they got, and how many of the recipes used unflavored gelatin. This is a very yummy salad/dessert.
