Call for Recipes: Jello Salad

I have been asked very specifically to bring a jello salad to a potluck this weekend. Never made one before, though I've eaten many, both good and bad. Got a winner? PLEEEEEEASE post it in comments, I will be grateful for the time I don't have to go searching the internet, and to avoid the gamble of an untried recipe.

Grated carrots need not apply.

my mom's favorite SALAD is a lime jello with cottage cheese, pineapple and i think whip cream. not stiff enough for a fancy mold like your pictures, but works in a 9x13.

she also likes to make a red (cherry i think) jello with ground up cranberry and orange stuff in there - a thanksgiving carol must. if either of those tickle your fancy i'll track down the actual recipes.

I'll come to the rescue. This is a sure winner.

1 small box of raspberry jello
1 1/4 c. boiling water
10 oz. bag of frozen raspberries (partially thawed)
1 small can of crushed pineapple (with juice)
1 banana sliced

Dissolve jello in water. Add remaining ingredients, throw in a mold, or whatever, and refrigerate. Check it in a while, when it starts to set, and give it a stir to bring up the fruit from the bottom. Top with whipped cream.
