Pineapple Gelatine Squares

I won’t deny it: I dislike gelatin desserts and salads. In a recent post I said that during the 60s, the best food was easy food, and gelatin dishes feel like a cop-out to me. There’s very little effort to making a jello salad. Maybe that was the intent, but for me it’s just a hard pass. Don’t let my opinion sway you if this sounds tasty, though! These sound like they are meant to be a fancy “salad” served during a plated luncheon. Let’s play bridge after eating!

1/4 teas salt

1 c grated raw carrots

1/2 c chopped pecans
