    WJKing's Note:

    Kids and adults alike love this 'salad!' Nice to slice & serve on a lettuce leaf (for presentation)- the colors can be varied to suit any holiday - greens & reds for Christmas, varying shades of red for Valentine's Day, etc.. ENJOY! This sounds like a lot of work, but it's really not. This is one I like to make when I'll be working around home all day, and can stop to do step after step. :)

      I haven't made this recipe as posted, but I would like to add another suggestion for presentation. My MIL use to make a similiar one in a large brandy sniffer-type glass with a stem base. She would put in the first jello flavor and then set the stem of the siffer between the grates of her fridge so that the jello would gel at an angle. She would then proceed with each additional flavor. It made an awe-inspiring presentation.

      My kids and I made it for a Fat Tuesday party. We used a bundt cake mold and mango, lime, and grape flavors. It was a big hit among kids and adults! We called it Jello King Cake. Great recipe!

      I made this recently and it was a big hit! I tried another recipe that calls for condensed milk instead of sour cream, but I found that to be way too sweet. I'm not a big fan of Jello, but this recipe was excellent. Time consuming, but worth the effort.
