Description: This is for the under-appreciated hero of the Thanksgiving dinner: Every year, it sits there quivering, unassuming, bright and cheerful and fruity…
and mostly neglected for the likes of turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes.
It’s not your fault, Lime Jello Salad, that your deliciousness is overlooked on such an occasion.
Don’t look at me with those pouty marshmallows, condemning me for my turkey lust. Here: I will make a tea inspired by you, and maybe then I will get to enjoy some of your delicious flavors–
AFTER I have some turkey!
My wife makes a lime jello salad with lime jello, pineapple, and marshmallow every Thanksgiving. I’m pretty sure I still haven’t tasted it, but it sounded like a great group of flavors to combine with our awesome Chinese sencha green tea. Enjoy! And happy Thanksgiving!
