Layered Holiday Jello Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Zewbiedoo

This is a variation on the traditional cranberry/pineapple salad; red and green layers with a cream cheese layer in between. My mom makes this at Christmas and/or Thanksgiving and I can't stop eating it. Would be good for potlucks, too. Yum!

Really good! Made this for Christmas dinner. Was a little concerned about the kids eating the cream cheese and sour cream layer but all three picky guys gobbled it down. Very pretty, especially when cut and arranged on a tray. Will make this one again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
