1/1 Photo of Christmas Jello Salad
4 hrs 20 mins
It just would not be any holiday in our house without this jello salad. My mother-in-law was the one who started this tradition many years ago, and now has passed her recipe on to me. This rich jello salad has a beautiful presentation with the cherry and lemon jello. To cut a few of the calories from this salad, I use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and sugar free jello.
