Raspberry Congealed Salad

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


6 servings

My sisters and I especially enjoyed Mom's cool tangy side dish, which looks so lovely on the table. The pineapple and raspberries are a delectable duo, and pecans add a hearty crunch. -Nancy Duty, Jacksonville, Florida


  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1 package (3 ounces) raspberry gelatin
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • Mayonnaise, optional


  1. Drain pineapple and raspberries, reserving juices. Place fruit in a large bowl; set aside. Add enough water to the juice to measure 1 cup. Pour into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved.
  2. Pour over fruit mixture. Add the applesauce and pecans. Pour into a 1-qt. bowl. Chill until set. Spoon into individual dessert dishes; top with a dollop of mayonnaise if desired.

    I;ve had this recipe in my files for quite some time and just tried it recently. It's a good use of the frozen raspberries I had from my garden last summer. I used sugar free gelatin and the results were very nice.

    This was simple and refreshing with just enough sweetness. Perfect for a summer side dish or dessert.

    This was very good. I used 2 cups still frozen mixed berries (from a one lb. package). I drained the pineapple, added water to make 1 cup and proceeded as recipe states. I then stirred in the applesauce and frozen berries. (omitted the nuts). Also added about 1/4 cup granular splenda because I used sugar free gelatin. Didnt' take long to set using the frozen berries. My kids love it!
