Raspberry Applesauce Jello Salad
3 cups (24 ounces) unsweetened Applesauce
1/4 cup Orange Juice
2 boxes (3 oz. each) Raspberry Jello – or any other flavor you want
1 1/2 cups Lemon-Lime Soda (Sprite, 7up, etc)
In a saucepan, heat applesauce and orange juice until boiling.
Remove from heat and stir in Jello until dissolved.
SLOWLY add soda. **This step WILL foam on you!
Pour into a 6 cup mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm.
Tips and Tricks:
I use a measuring cup to transfer the mixture into the jello mold.
No cooking spray? No problem - just use a paper towel to spread a little bit of vegetable oil into the mold.
Flipping over the mold is always the nerve-racking part. Place your plate over the mold and hold the plate and mold together tightly. QUICKLY flip over and allow the molded salad to settle onto the plate - gently tap the mold to encourage the salad to let go.
Actually, half the time, I just pour this one into a gorgeous crystal serving bowl and let it firm in the bowl and serve it straight from the bowl... it's easier and less nerve-racking that way! Either way, it's a beautiful and yummy salad!
