Rainbow Jello

Yep, this was the layered Jello salad that I made to go along with the Tater Tot Casserole. My little boy loves this Jello salad - he would eat huge piece after huge piece if you let him.

Rainbow Jello

small box lime jello
small box lemon jello
small box orange jello
small box strawberry jello
small box cherry jello
small box black cherry jello
1 1/2 lb container sour cream

Okay this is the order that they are going to go into the 9x13 baking dish: lime, lemon, orange, strawberry, cherry, black cherry.

Starting with lime: combine lime jello packet with 1 1/4 cups boiling water. Stir for about 2 minutes. Pour 3/4 cup into a measuring cup and set aside. Add 1/3 cup sour cream to the 1st half of the mixture and stir until smooth, use a wire whisk, but don't make it too foamy. Pour the sour cream mixture into the bottom of a 9x13. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Combine the reserved 3/4 cup liquid jello with 3 tablespoons of cold water and pour this over the 1st layer. Repeat with remaining boxes of jello. Refrigerate till ready to serve and serve with a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream.

*I always start making this one the night before because all in all it takes about 6 hours to make.
