This is a great salad- I only use 1/2 the recommended sour cream. It tasted too much like yogurt with the full amount. I will make again and again!

Excellent compliment to turkey! This will be a new favorite! I used all raspberry jello and added a bit of cream cheese with the sour cream. SOOO good!

this is a beautiful salad. I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone wanted it again at Christmas. I doubled it for my crowd, but I would suggest not doubling the pineapple so it will jell properly.

Very tasty. Love the tartness of the raspberry jello and the frozen raspberries. Added whip cream instead of sour cream and it was delish! Second time made it with the sour cream - it was so much better! Don't skip the sour cream!

A family favorite at Christmas dinner. I substitute 16 oz. can of pitted bing cherries (drained) instead of cranberry sauce. Sometimes I layer salad in individual sherbert glasses--recipe divides easily between 10 glasses. Great presentation plus the addition of a sprig of mint.

Fantastic! Everybody loved it. I chilled the cranberry sauce (which helped speed up the process a little). I did not add the pineapple, but it did not seem to matter. The taste and texture was great. And no matter what, don't forget the sour cream!!

YIPPEE! A jello salad with no cream cheese or cool whip! I loved this. No cloying sweetness here. I will make this again and again. My whole family loves gelatine salads, but this one was the very best! Thanks Poni. ;0)
