A delicious take on jello. Although the combination may sound a bit on the odd side, it is extremely refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. Perfect for BBQs and Potlucks. For a "healthier" version, we use sugar-free jello (0.3 ounce package).

There are many "ribbons" here on Zaar, but I've browsed them, and this is different. The addition of pie filling to the red layer changes the texture. You can lighten it up using sugar-free Jell-O and lite mayo and Cool Whip. Cook time is chill time.
This dessert/salad brings back such fond feelings. This is the recipe my grandmother served the kids 2-3 times a year when we were all together. After she died no one could find her recipe for this. I guess that is what the internet is for! When I surprised the family with this recipe at Christmas dinner, both my aunt AND uncle cried. I hope your family enjoys this dessert as much as mine has.
I had this recipe at a shower over 20 years ago and since then has been a must have at holiday's, graduation parties and get-togethers. I use a glass 9x13-inch dish and after it's done it's really pretty to look at and even better to eat..
It is Better if You use vanilla and not vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks for trying my ice cream recipe. :)
This salad is a MUST at our holiday table...maybe it will be at yours too! To speed the jelly stage along, I place the bowl in the freezer, but watch it closely. If it goes past the jelly stage, put it in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it. This is GREAT for potlucks too!
This is the moistest cake you will ever eat. I love it with strawberry jello and garnished with fresh strawberries. The Cool Whip makes such a pretty pure white and creamy frosting. It was my mom's favorite birthday cake. Prep time is also chill time
A combination of cream cheese and whipped topping on a graham cracker crust topped off with peach slices and peach jello makes for a wonderful make ahead dessert. Allow time in the refrigerator to set.
When I was a teen I worked in the kitchen of a local hospital. This was the most popular dessert by patients and staff. The dessert cook refused to part with the recipe, so one day I distracted her while my partner in crime Ed stole the recipe to copy. The drama was well worth it. This is light and delicious. Prep time does not include the jello thickening time nor refrigeration time.
This yummy dessert/salad has been in the family for ages. Works just as well with sugar free jello and light products. I usually double this recipe, and serve it as a nice light dessert or side salad whenever the weather warms. Great for potlucks! Enjoy! Note: Cook time is chill time.
The first time I made this my kids were in awe. They loved the colors. I took it to a church potluck and it was gone really quick. The recipe takes time as the jello layers need to set - however the presentation is very nice. I think this is a TOH recipe.
