I made this jello salad from AllRecipes for our New Years Day dinner tomorrow night. Our friends Ben, Kati, and their dog Enzo will be coming over to join us for dinner and hang out. Kati has celiac disease, so I'm making everything gluten-free and I thought this would be an easy side dish... plus I can use up some ripe bananas that I have on my counter. :) This sure looks good - I'm sure it'll taste good, too! Its very similar to a recipe that my family makes quite often - only they use marshmallows instead of bananas... I figure the bananas make it a little healthier. :) Update: it was delicious! It filled in for our dessert since I didn't end up having time to make a flourless chocolate cake. Definitely a keeper and something I'll make again!
