Low Carb Keto Jello Fluff Salad with Cranberries and Pecans
It looks like CLUE, the Movie is getting a reboot.
Well, hopefully it is good news. It'll be hard to top the 1985 film though. It's this campy cult classic that starred a whole raft of great character actors, like Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd, and of course, the wonderful Madeline Kahn as Mrs. White. Her description of killing her rival because she saw "Flames, flames, on the side of my face, burning" will go down in improv history. (below)
We used to have a VHS copy of CLUE when my sisters and I were kids. I cannot tell you how many times we watched it. As I re-watched the final scene just now, I found that I could still recite most of it by memory. And it put me in mind of these great Jello salads that my grandmother used to make at around that same time. Like this recipe for Jello Fluff Salad.
Jello Fluff Salad is kind of interesting as Jello salads go, because you don't gel it at all.
The Jello powder just acts as a flavoring for the cottage cheese and whipped cream that make up this salad. Jello Fluff salads usually have nuts and fruit of some kind. To keep this salad low carb, I went with cranberries and pecans. And of course, Sugar Free Jello. But feel free to skip the cranberries if they aren't in season. Or substitute in raspberries instead. This salad is flexible.
Just like Mrs. Peacock in the kitchen with the carving knife.
