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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour 1 1/4 cup boiling water over cherry Jell-O. Stir until dissolved. Stir in cherry pie filling. Pour into 13 x 9 glass pan. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Pour 1 cup boiling water over lime Jell-O. Stir until dissolved. Stir in pineapple with juice. Refrigerate until slightly thickened, but not set, about 30 minutes.
