Sangria Jell-O Salad
This should make Minnesota-Lutherans happy!
What would a Minnesota web site be without a Jell-O recipe? This is from the
1 6-ounce package raspberry-flavored Jell-O
1 3/4 cups fruity red wine
1 cup chilled orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 large oranges
1 cup green seedless grapes, halved lengthwise (about 7 ounces)
1 cup sliced hulled strawberries
Additional grapes and strawberries
Lightly oil a 6-cup ring mold. Place raspberry Jell-O
in large bowl. Bring wine to simmer in small saucepan. Add wine to Jell-O and stir until
Jell-O is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in orange juice and lemon juice. Place bowl in
larger bowl filled with ice and water. Cool until Jell-O begins to set slightly, stirring
occasionally, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, grate 1 tablespoon peel from oranges. Cut remaining peel
and white pith from oranges; discard. Cut between membranes; release segments.
Add orange segments and peel, 1 cup grapes and 1 cup strawberries to
Jell-O; stir to blend well. Pour mixture into mold. Chill at least 6 hours or overnight.
Run knife around mold sides to loosen Jell-O. Place mold in bowl
filled with enough hot water to come halfway up sides of mold for 30 seconds. Place
platter atop mold; invert Jell-O onto platter. Garnish with additional fruit.
