Ribbon Salad

This is a favorite for Christmas gatherings.  It takes a little time but is a very pretty 3 layered salad.  Sorry I don't have a picture.

Ribbon Salad
(Double to make a full 9x13 pan.)
red layer-
1 sm. package raspberry jello
1 1/2 cups boiling water
Dissolve and pour into 9x9 pan.  Chill til just firm.  Then add-

White layer-
1 sm. package lemon jello
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 pint cream (or evaporated milk)(use whole can for double recipe)
3 oz cream cheese, room temperature (8 oz for double recipe)
Dissolve jello in boiling water. Add cream cheese stirring til melted.  Then add cream.
Pour onto red layer and chill til just firm.

Green layer
1 sm. package lime jello
1 cup boilingwater+pineapple juice
1 large can crushed pineapple, drained. Save juice to add to the water.
Dissolve lime jello in water combined with pineapple juice. Add cr. pineapple and pour over white layer. Chill till firm.
Cut in squares.  May serve on lettuce leaf, or use a jello mold, or in individual sherbet dishes.
Enjoy!

Hint- do not let it get totally firm between the layers or the layers will slide apart when serving.  It needs to be just firm so when you touch it, a little will stick to your finger.
