Fourth of July Jell-O Recipe
"With six children, I'm always looking for wholesome quick recipes," shares Mabel Yoder of Bonduel, Wisconsin. "This colorful salad can be fixed by school-age children and looks so pretty served in a glass bowl."
- 1 package (3 ounces) berry blue gelatin
- 2 cups boiling water, divided
- 1/2 cup cold water, divided
- 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
- 1 can (15 ounces) pear halves, drained and cubed
- In a large bowl, dissolve the berry gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 1/4 cup cold water. Pour into an ungreased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Refrigerate until firm. Repeat with strawberry gelatin and remaining boiling and cold water.
- When gelatin is set, cut into cubes. Just before serving, gently combine gelatin cubes and pears in a large glass bowl or individual dishes. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Cute Idea. I can see this being made with
red and green Jello for Christmas OR
green and orange jello for St Patrick's Day.
