Here's a recipe I used to make a lot for big family gatherings at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Could be served any time you want a cool, refreshing salad with the flavors of raspberries and cranberries and the creaminess of sour cream. From a church fund raiser cookbook, around 1984. Passive cooking time is a guesstimate for the chilling time required. (It's been a long time since I made this...)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cherry gelatin with 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir until well dissolved.
  2. Add cranberry sauce and pineapple. Stir. Pour mixture into a 13 by 9 pan. Chill until firm.
  3. Spread sour cream over the hardened gelatin.
  4. Mix raspberry gelatin with remaining boiling water (1 1/2 cups). Add thawed raspberries. Chill until partially set. Then pour over sour cream layer and chill until firm.
