Strawberry Congealed Salad is so misunderstood. Can you hear that noise? That’s the rest of the world saying, “You do what to jello and call it salad?” Yes, it wiggles. And yes, it jiggles. Yes, the word “congealed” is about as appealing as the word “moist.” So yeah, rest of the world, you have a point.
But we in the South see your point and raise you a square of sweet, creamy crunchy goodness. Strawberries, bananas, pineapple and pecans laced with sour cream – what’s not to love? It’s a southern tradition for a reason: it’s good with basically anything. So, rest of the world, take your skepticism and move right along. But first…just try the strawberry congealed salad, ok?
