CHILL TIME

Cool, creamy, and full of fruit, this is one of those recipes that you find yourself eating morning, noon, and night. And since it's made with shortcut ingredients, you can make our Strawberry Patch Salad year-round!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 package (4-serving size) strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen sweetened strawberries in syrup, thawed
  • 1 (8- ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Stir in the strawberries and their syrup, the pineapple, banana, and pecans until well mixed.

  2. Spoon half of the mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish and chill for about 1 hour, or until set; reserve the remaining gelatin mixture at room temperature.

  3. When the chilled gelatin is set, spread the top with the sour cream, then top with the reserved gelatin mixture. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.

Can any other fruit be used for this recipe? I look forward to your response. Thanks

You can substitute with any other frozen fruit that you prefer. Enjoy!

My grandmother used to make this a lot but she didn't mash the banana. She just sliced it and mixed it in with the gelatin mixture.

mother made this every holiday its a very nice special salad

Why does it say reserve syrup when it says stir in strawberries and syrup?

Good catch! - We've gone ahead and removed the "reserve syrup" from the ingredients, since you are supposed to stir it all in, in the first step. Thanks again, and we hope you enjoy this recipe. :)

I love sour cream but can you use Greek Yogurt Instead of sour cream ??

Yes, you can use Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream in this recipe, so long as it is thick and not a soupy yogurt. Enjoy!

Could you use Cool Whip instead of sour cream? My family isn't too fond of sour cream.

Yes, you can use whipped topping in place of the sour cream. Enjoy!

Love this salad always a staple at Holiday's
