St. Patrick’s Day Dessert | Green Dream Jello Salad Recipe

Jello Salad

This fluffy Green Dream Jello Recipe is a twist on a longtime family favorite.  Hubs Nan called it Zilches Delight and would thrill the kids year round with this as a before dinner dessert.  We used green jello for St. Patrick’s Day and added the rainbow to give it that extra touch.   I hope you and your family love this refreshing St. Patrick’s Day Dessert!
