Jello Ribbon Salad - My Son's Favorite!

I've been making this jello dessert for MANY years.  It has several steps and you have to wait for each layer to set up, but it is SO worth the effort !!

Christmas Ribbon Salad Recipe


1 package (.3 ounce) each of lime, lemon and raspberry gelatin

3 cups boiling water, divided

1 cup minature marshmallows

1-1/2 cups COLD water
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed

1 can (1 lb. 4-1/2 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained

1 cup cool whip


Dissolve Jello gelatin flavors separately, using 1 cup boiling water for each.  Stir marchmallows into lemon gelatin; set aside.  Add 3/4 cup cold water to lime gelatin; pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish (coated with cooking spray). Refrigerate until almost set.

Add 3/4 cup cold water to raspberry gelatin; set aside at room temperature.

Add cream cheese to lemon mixture; beat until blended.  Chill until slightly thickened.  Then blend in mayonnaise, cool whip and crushed pineapple. (NOTE: if you like nuts, you can add 1/2 choped pecans at this point to the lemon mixture).  Chill until very thick; spoon gently over lime gelatin. Chill until set, but not firm.  Meanwhile, chill raspberry gelatin until thickened; pour over lemon mixture.  Chill until firm.
