This recipe is a combination of the two other layered jello recipes. It’s easy and turned out beautifully. I worked on this to make the combinations just right.
1. Grease a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray. Wipe off the excess with a paper towel.
2. Mix green jello with 2 cups boiling water. Place in the 9×13 pan and let set for 30-45 minutes in the refrigerator.
3. While the green jello is setting, make the white layer by mixing 1 cup of boiling water with both Knox gelatin envelopes or 1 Knox and 1 lemon gelatin package. Mix well and add in 1 cup sour cream.
4. Carefully pour 1/2 of white layer on top of the green jello and place back in the refrigerator.
5. Begin mixing 2 cups boiling water with the orange jello. As soon as the white mixture sets up, pour the orange jello on top, refrigerate and let set for another 30-45 minutes.
6. Most likely you will need to reheat your white mixture before you can pour the last layer of white over the orange. If it’s at all lumpy and not pourable, pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir. You do not want this to be too hot before you pour it on the orange layer.
7. Start mixing your last layer of red jello with 2 cups of boiling water and once the white layer sets, pour the red jello on top of it.
8. Refrigerate and let set up completely.
It’s important to let each layer set up before adding the next layer. As long as you can touch it and it seems to just be a little sticky, you should be able to place the next layer on top.
You can use any flavor combinations of jello.
The salad is absolutely perfect as a side for a nice, salty meat. It’s perfect for ham and divine for roast beef. (You really can’t go wrong!) My maternal grandfather was so taken with it the first year it was served that he took home all the leftovers.
Jello salads are a dying breed. I fondly remember this one that my grandma made for every holiday meal. It’s still a favorite. It’s always invited back whenever I take it to gatherings and pot-lucks. I know this recipe by heart since I’ve repeated it over and over upon request. I hope you will enjoy it as much as my family has.
