This refreshing salad has two layers - a pretty pink bottom that includes sour cream, and a ruby red top with strawberries and pineapple. For years, Mom has included this salad in meals she prepares for our family. -Gloria Grant, Sterling, Illinois

"this salad is super yummy! it is not overly sweet like some jello salads. every-time I bring it places people are asking for the recipe, this one is a keeper. making it for thanksgiving tomorrow as it trumps the cranberry jello of the past in my family!"
