Very easy & very good. A nice cool fruit salad that is very satisfying, especially during those hot summer days.


  1. Dissolve the gelatin the boiling water.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except the sour cream.
  3. Pour half of the mixture in a salad mold; let chill until firm.
  4. Cover with a layer of sour cream, then top with the remaining half of the mixture. Refrigerate until firm.
  5. Garnish with fresh strawberry and pineapple.

This is really good. I made it for Easter dinner. I'm trying to lose weight, so I lightened it up a bit by using two large containers of fresh strawberries, sliced, mixed with two packs of Splenda. Then I added the sliced bananas. I used 2 C of boiling water with Sugar-Free gelatin and mixed only about 1/4 C of chopped pecans in with 1 C of Light Sour cream. I left out the pineapple completely. It was lucious. I'm eating some right now. Yum. This is good for a salad or a dessert.

Excellent! The jello firmed up nicely and looked great topped this the sour cream frosting. I've never had a jello salad with sour cream on it before that I know of but this was very good. Thanks for a great recipe.
