Raspberry Salad Recipe

  • 5 cups thick applesauce
  • 2 boxes (3 oz. each) raspberry Jello
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 6 oz. cream cheese, softened, (optional)

Place applesauce in a saucepan and bring to boiling point.

Remove from heat and stir in dry Jello for about 3 minutes, scraping down sides, until all granules dissolve.

Stir in cool water.

Lightly grease 8 cup jello mold. (A non-stick bundt pan works great).

Pour in cooled mixture and refrigerate until congealed.

To remove salad from mold, dip it a few seconds into warm (not hot) water to loosen and invert pan onto serving plate.

Dip the mold a little below the rim so the water doesn't run over top of salad.

Pipe softened cream cheese around bottom of ring for decoration, if desired.

Salad may be sliced and served on a bed of salad greens such as lettuce leaves or spinach, in a salad bowl or plate.

Raspberry Cranberry Salad

  • 2 small boxes (3 oz.) Raspberry Jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 can (about 16 oz.) whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup canned pears, drained and cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (or pecans)
  • lettuce leaves

Put Jello in a mixing bowl.

Slowly pour in boiling water and stir until dissolved.

Add cold water and cranberry sauce. Stir until well blended.

Chill until Jello starts to congeal. Stir in pears and nuts.

Pour into a 6 cup mold and chill 4-6 hours until firm.

Arrange lettuce leaves on serving plate or tray.

Unmold salad onto bed of lettuce.

Garnish with additional pears and nuts, if desired.

Note: Both recipes can be garnished with fresh or frozen and thawed whole raspberries and or Homemade Whipped Cream.
