Ribbon Salad for Christmas

Here is a great jello salad to make for any Christmas occasion!
It is fun and looks like a Christmas ribbon when you are through. 
Use other kinds of jellos (colors) for other times of the year.

Ribbon Salad
1 6 oz. Box of Lime Jello
1 6 oz. Box of Cherry Jello
1 6 oz. Box of Lemon Jello
3 ox. of Cream Cheese
1/4 cup of Mayonnaise
1/2 bag of Small Marshmallows
1 cup of Cool Whip
1 Cup of Crushed Pineapples

Prepare the Cherry Jello as it tells you on the box. Spray your 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour your jello in and let it set up in the refrigerator.  

After it is set up drain your pineapples and use the juice from the pineapples. Add enough water to the pineapple juice to make 2 cups. Boil these 2 cups. When it has came to a boil add your box of lemon jello and marshmallows. Mix thoroughly so that it melts all of your marshmallows.

Place in a clean bowl and put it in the refrigerator until it has partially set up. In another bowl, mix together your cream cheese, mayonnaise  and pineapple. Fold this in with the lemon mixture and then add your cool whip. 

Spread this evenly over your cherry jello and then let it set up for a little bit. Make your lime jello as it directs you to on the box. Pour this on top and then let it set up. 

When you are all done you have jello salad that looks like a Christmas Ribbon!

*Note: you can do any kind of Jello you want. Using red and green just makes it great for Christmas.
