This recipe was shared with us from some dear friends. My husband and her husband served in the same National Guard unit in Utah. We spent a Thanksgiving with them and this was one of the outstanding salads she prepared.
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.
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 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 crisp salty pretzel crust complements the creamy marshmallow-fluff-like "white" layer, with a tangy topping of strawberries in gelatin. Much like a strawberry cheesecake, but with the surprise of pretzels! For best results, make Strawberry Pretzel Jell-O only one day in advance, to preserve the crunchy texture of the pretzels.
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).

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.
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.
Yes, I hate yogurt, but I know the nutritional value and how good it is for you. I now make this at least once a week and eat it as a low calorie snack at work almost daily. Anyone who has tried it loves it. No yogurt taste at all. Try it, you'll become a yogurt eater too.
Thanks to the Jello cookbook.
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.
