I made this jello salad for Christmas dinner...I usually make Mom's triple-layer Christmas salad, but I wanted to mix things up and just go a little wild! :) :) This salad was absolutely delicious and decidedly perfect for this meal, or any meal at any time of year. The sour cream gave it a perfect flavor, together with the cherry and raspberry layers. It was easy to make and disappeared fast! Next time you need a jello salad, try this one.
