Dissolve Jello in hot water. Add frozen raspberries and blend carefully. Add applesauce. Pour into 9-inch square pan. Chill until set. Combine sour cream and marshmallows and spread over top of set Jello. Cover and Chill. Serves 6-8. I have doubled this recipe and put it in a 9 x 13 pan. Refreshingly cool salad!

  1. Yummy! I bet you enjoyed typing words like Chill and Cool and Frozen! Hope it is cooler there today.

    Lana, It really cooled down 🙂

  2. My brother has a pick n pay berry farm not too far from here….going to have to pay him a visit and see if he has any left…this looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

    Karen, How fun, I enjoy those u-pick-em farms…

  3. I have some frozen raspberries in the freezer, and I think I’ll try this. The kids love anything with jello and fruit.

    Rebecca, I hope they like it.

  4. My folks at the Senior Center would/will LOVE this! I will let you know what their comments are … they get tired of hospital Jello 😉 you know lime jello and pears that are so tough you can hardly eat them … Ellen, you always have a nice pic to display with your topics which makes them enjoyable …

    Pam, Thank you and I think your folks will enjoy it…

  5. oh that looks yummy!! We won’t have raspberries for a couple of weeks – everything is behind here – but I will be making that for a few special birthday parties in August! Thanks Ellen!

    Kathie, It is really refreshing. Enjoy

  6. Hi sorry to ask a silly question – but I come from a totally different part of the world so maybe that excuses me!!

    What would you guys serve this with?

    It looks and sounds like a desert I would make?

    Mummymac, That’s a great question. It could be a dessert, also, but it really goes well with savory items. In the past I’ve served it with ham and it gives the right balance to the saltiness of the ham.

  7. Funny, we made the same thing growing up… EXCEPT, we never had that topping. I am thinking four kids + a marshmallow topping would be a big hit.
    Thanks for the idea!

    p.s. I second the comment about your photos, as well as the artwork you occasionally post.

    Kim, Thank you. When I bought the marshmallows for this, my 21 year old daughter grabbed the bag and ate them plain. Marshmallows are a great addition to jello!
