Classic Easter Jello!
Every Year I have to make my mom’s Jello salad. I know it’s gone out of fashion, but if I don’t make it, my brother might not come to dinner. This year Mom will be at my other brother’s so she’ll be making it for them. You know how it is with families, some people like green bean casserole…we need this. But since even my husband is hooked, I thought I’d share it!
2 packages ‘red’ Jello (Any flavor of red will do) prepared according to package directions…but do not chill yet!
Add 2 small packages frozen strawberries or 2 baskets fresh, smashed up.
3 bananas, also smashed up
and 1 14 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
Ladle half jello into a 9″x13″ pan and chill until firm. Leave remaining jello at room temp, you don’t want it firming up just yet.
Remove chilled Jello from refrigerator and add 1 8 ounce container of sour cream, smooth into an even layer.
Ladle remaining Jello carefully over sour cream.
This works well with regular or sugar free Jello.
Let me know if your crowd likes it. With a guy in the house who shouldn’t eat sugar, Sugar Free Jello makes my life good when he’s looking for goodies. I think I’ll see how many of those old-time recipes he likes!
