Apple-Pecan Salad Recipe

Step 1

Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1-1/4 cups boiling water; cool slightly. Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, and lemon juice. Blend mixture into lemon gelatin. Chill until slightly thickened, about 1 hour - and fold in apples and pecans.

Step 2

Meanwhile, dissolve orange gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Add apple juice. Pour 2/3 cup of liquid into a 6-cup ring mold. Chill until set but not firm, about 30 minutes. Chill remaining orange gelatin mixture until slightly thickened.

Step 3

Spoon lemon gelatin mixture over orange gelatin in mold and top with remaining orange gelatin. Chill until firm - at least 4 hours but overnight if possible to insure a very firm salad and one that will unmold easily.
