For an excellent holiday gelatin salad, try this one. It looks so lovely on a platter and tastes good with the fruit and a hint of eggnog flavor. It goes well with any meal because it's refreshing. -Alice Ceresa, Rochester, New York


  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) sliced pears
  • 1 package (6 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • Orange slices, maraschino cherries and mint leaves, optional


  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water; let stand 1 minute.
  2. Drain pears over a 2-cup measuring cup, reserving syrup. Add enough water to the syrup to measure 2 cups; pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Add lemon gelatin and unflavored gelatin mixture; stir 2 minutes to dissolve completely. Cool 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in sour cream and eggnog until well blended. Refrigerate until partially set.
  4. Cut oranges and drained pears into chunks; stir into gelatin mixture. Pour into a 6-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate, covered, until firm. If desired, serve with oranges, cherries and mint.
