It's hot, kids cranky? Baby sitting for the grandkids? Let them make and devour these wonderful frozen treats. Be aware, adults also love them, so keep a big batch in the freezer.
- 2 cups sour cream
- 3/ 4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
- one (15 ounce can) crushed pineapple, well drained
- 1/ 3 cup chopped maraschino cherries
- 1/ 3 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 - 3 bananas, sliced thin
In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream, sugar, and lemon juice. Add the gelatin and mix well. Stir in the drained pineapple, cherries, walnuts, and banana slices. Mix together thoroughly. Spoon mixture into paper cupcake liners set in muffin tins (any size, I like the standard, but you could use mini). Freeze uncovered, and when frozen, remove the salads (with the liners) from the muffin tins and place in a large freezer baggie.
Let your frozen treats come to room temperature, about 15 to 20 minutes before serving, or if you like them like as popsicles, eat frozen.

Three years ago my family vacationed in Seville, Spain and I discovered that I could have my salad as a soup. I had never tasted anything so fresh & delicious! It’s called Gazpacho Soup. Gazpacho soup is from the southern region of Spain called Andalusia. It’s made of ripe tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, garlic, and blended with olive oil, vinegar and served cold. The original soup was blended with stale bread which takes additional time to prepare. I like recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious, therefore the recipe below does not include bread.

When my mother-in-law, Marilyn Edson, passed away this past fall, my husband inherited over 200 cookbooks from her vast collection. She had a reputation for being quite a cook, and spent some time cooking for a tiny little restaurant in Blair, Nebraska, known as the Blair Marina.
