Last year we went over to my brother and his (then) girlfriend’s house for a party. She made this awesome Ribbon Salad. I loved it, but it was too late for photographs to put on the blog. This year, when we went over to their house his (now) fiancée (yes, it is the same woman) told me my father had requested she make the Ribbon Salad for Father’s Day!

I immediately asked her for in-process photos, and said I’d take the final shots before it was served.

Well of course I forgot my camera, so these were all done will cell phone, but I think you’ve got the idea.

This is one fantastic recipe! I looked up Ribbon Salad’s online, and they are all waaaaaay more complicated than Shelly’s recipe.

She does have some tips on this Ribbon Salad recipe:

• When you start a box, finish it. By that she means boil the water, mix with Jell-O style=, separate, add the sour cream to the 1/3 portion, chill, wait 30 minutes, add those 2 tablespoons to the remaining jello liquid, chill again. At this point if you have something to do, there is no need to worry about the next 30 minutes. It can be longer. She actually made the one seen here over two days. She started it Friday, and had company so it wasn’t finished until Sunday morning.

• This serves beautifully!

• I forgot about asking how the leftovers hold up. I have no personal knowledge of how long this lasts once cut because my father takes all the leftovers when he leaves. SMH

• You can vary the colors to anything you want. Think green and red for Christmas. Or red, orange, yellow for fall!
