COOKING ~ Recipe for Raspberry Jell-O Salad

Raspberry Salad
No ~ we haven't actually made this "Pink Salad" (as Isobel called it) for ourselves yet, but I didn't want to lose the recipe, so I thought I'd post it here, as promised, for others to enjoy. Isobel ate two helpings of this dish at the Lloydminster Homeschool Association's wind-up BBQ and asked for the recipe on her own!

So, on a hot summer day, when the raspberries are in season, you can whip up a bowl of this pink treat.

Raspberry Salad

Serves: 4-6 (very generously)
Prep. Time: 30-35min. (not including chill time)


3 oz. Raspberry Jell-O (smallest package that serves 4)
2 c. Whipping cream (whipped--that's 1c. of plain cream)
¾ c. Boiling water
½ c. Sugar
1-2 c. Raspberries, fresh or frozen (thawed, if using frozen it is recommended to use the fresh, frozen ones, NOT the ones frozen in syrup)
1 c. Mini marshmallows


Dissolve Jell-O with water and sugar (It will want to stick to the dish, so you need to scrape it away from the dish and keep stirring until it is ALL dissolved--about 5-8 minutes!!!)

Let chill until syrupy (about 15 minutes).

Put whipped cream in a medium bowl; add Jell-O.
Fold whipping cream into Jell-O.
Add raspberries and marshmallows.
Fold in raspberries and marshmallows.
Chill thoroughly (Preferably overnight, but can do 4-5 hours).
Before you serve it, gently mix it up so it doesn't look smooth.

TIP: Make a double batch because people LOVE it!
