Christmas Ribbon Salad Recipe

Spirits are light at holiday time around Debra Stoner's home--and so are many of the meas she serves. "I make this dessert every year at Christmas," she informs from Carlisle, Pennsylvania. "It's one of my husband's favorites. I slimmed down the recipe by using sugar-free gelatin and reduced-fat topping."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:15 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free lime gelatin
  • 5 cups boiling water, divided
  • 4 cups cold water, divided
  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free lemon gelatin
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping
  • 2 packages (.3 ounce each) sugar-free cherry gelatin

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve lime gelatin in 2 cups boiling water. Add 2 cups cold water; stir. Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until almost set, about 2 hours.
  • 2. In a bowl, dissolve lemon gelatin in 1 cup boiling water; whisk in cream cheese until smooth. Stir in pineapple and pecans. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon over first layer. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  • 3. In a bowl, dissolve cherry gelatin in remaining boiling water. Add remaining cold water; stir. Chill until syrupy and slightly thickened. Carefully spoon over second layer. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours. Yield: 15 servings.

"This is an old favourite in our family too. I've never tried it with the pecans though - sounds interesting. Since we are a small family, I always made half this recipe, and made it in a loaf pan, which I then unmoulded. Thanks for reminding me of this - I'll make it for my church pot luck!"

"I make a similiar desert for the holidays,but, I only use the lemon and cherry jello. also I dissolve 3/4 cup of miniture marshmellows with the boiling warter and cream cheese (4 oz.) If lime jellow is used I put it on top and eliminate the cherry jello. Maybe I'll try putting the lime jello on bottom and use all 3."
