Holiday Fruit Salad

Layered Strawberry Jello

Let's face it, you'll receive more fruit baskets around the holidays than you know what to do with. Well here's a great option to make good use of that fresh fruit and have a delicious dessert at the same time.

Ingredients:

  • 3 packages (3 oz. each) strawberry flavor gelatin

  • 3 cups boiling water

  • 2 ripe bananas

  • 1 packages (16 oz.) frozen strawberries

  • 1 can (20 oz.) Crushed pineapple

  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup dairy sour cream or plain yogurt

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • Crisp lettuce leaves

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in the boiling water. Slice the bananas into gelatin mixture. Add the frozen strawberries and undrained pineapple. Pour half of the mixture into a 13 x 9 inch pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. In a mixer bowl, beat cream cheese with the sour cream and sugar; spread over chilled layer. Gently spoon remaining gelatin mixture on top. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours. Cut into squares; serve on the lettuce-lined salad plates. Garnish with additional pineapple, if desired.
