The other day I was craving a Jell-O salad my mom used to make. So I decided to make it for our Super Bowl par... er, Sunday dinner. It was a big hit. So I thought I'd share the recipe with you. The picture doesn't really do it any justice. It was beautiful.
7 cups boiling water
7 packages of Jell-O that are the colors of the rainbow
(If you cannot find blue, buy a red and mix it with a ton of blue food coloring)
2 1/3 cups sour cream
2 1/3 cups water
Mix one packet of Jell-O (starting with purple) with 1 cup boiling water until the powder dissolves. Split this in half. In one half, add 1/3 cup water. In other half, add 1/3 cup sour cream. Use a whisk and whip until smooth. Pour one half, whichever one you want to start with, into a 9" x 13" glass pan. Refrigerate until it sets (do not refrigerate other mixture, leave out on counter), about 20 minutes. After it sets, pour second mixture onto the first layer. Repeat these steps until you have all 14 layers in order of the rainbow. Yummy!
