This is a great salad- I only use 1/2 the recommended sour cream. It tasted too much like yogurt with the full amount. I will make again and again! Read More

this is a beautiful salad. I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone wanted it again at Christmas. I doubled it for my crowd but I would suggest not doubling the pineapple so it will jell properly. Read More

Very tasty. Love the tartness of the raspberry jello and the frozen raspberries. Added whip cream instead of sour cream and it was delish! Second time made it with the sour cream - it was so much better! Don't skip the sour cream! Read More

A family favorite at Christmas dinner. I substitute 16 oz. can of pitted bing cherries (drained) instead of cranberry sauce. Sometimes I layer salad in individual sherbert glasses--recipe divides easily between 10 glasses. Great presentation plus the addition of a sprig of mint. Read More

Fantastic! Everybody loved it. I chilled the cranberry sauce (which helped speed up the process a little). I did not add the pineapple but it did not seem to matter. The taste and texture was great. And no matter what don't forget the sour cream!! Read More

Easy to make and delicious. It's a nice change from the overly sweet gelatin salad recipes out there & makes a nice dinner side dish...it's more like a relish or cranberry sauce type of side than a typical gelatin salad. It got rave reviews from a crowd not prone to compliment such things. Read More

YIPPEE! A jello salad with no cream cheese or cool whip! I loved this. No cloying sweetness here. I will make this again and again. My whole family loves gelatine salads but this one was the very best! Thanks Poni.;0) Read More
