Like Capital-One, I don't leave home without it. For family or church gatherings, there's always a couple of requests for this oh-so-easy salad/dessert. Be mindful, though...it really freezes up and does take some time to thaw out enough to enjoy the full-bodied flavor. After all the times I've made it, though, I almost always forget to bring it out early as a salad. Sooo, once the meal is over I present it as dessert!!
I'm pretty sure I found this recipe in a church cookbook--the ideal place to find great recipes. Simply stated, "a refreshing blend of cherry and lemon flavors that is easy to make and sure to please." I made this for our daughter's high school graduation party, and I'm still making it today--20 yrs. later! As with many two-(or more) layered jello salads, be patient for first layer to set.
Found this recipe in "Taste of Home's" 2004 Holiday Recipe Card Collection. Served for my church womens group mtg. and they loved it. A little fussy, but well worth the compliments. Do need to be aware of folks who may have a problem with seeds. Set a note by dish or inform your group. A refreshing, creative way to present the wonderful taste of raspberries.
Growing up, "Baba" referred to my grandmother--mom's mom. Boy could she cook. She'd be 112 today. Baba used to make this salad every summer and store it in a big glass jar. When we were kids, that bean jar was like a never-ending story--always full and ready to go. It keeps quite well. Store tightly covered in fridge for up to a week. Just stir or turn container occasionally.
A unique, savory casserole that is definitely a "comfort food." Easy to make, the light, creamy tomato sauce provides a creative twist on familiar ingredients. First made it over 30 years ago. I haven't a clue now where it came from, but it's well worth a try.
