Strawberry-Banana Salad

strawberrys.jpgMost people think of Jello as a hospital or Senior Citizen food item; but this recipe, made by Julie Curry, will knock your socks off.

An excellent dessert during a summer time BBQ or dinner.

1 package (6 oz) strawberry gelatin

1 cup boiling water

20 oz strawberries (the recipe calls for frozen, but I like to use fresh)

1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained

1 cup mashed firm bananas (about 3 medium)

½ to ¾ cup chopped walnuts

2 cups (16 oz) sour cream

2 teaspoons sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

In a bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Stir in strawberries, pineapple, bananas, and nuts. Pour half of the mixture into a 9×13 dish. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Set the remaining gelatin mixture aside. Combine the sour cream, sugar, and vanilla; mix well. Spread over the chilled gelatin. Spoon remaining gelatin mixture over top.

Chill overnight. 12-15 servings.
