Who’s ready for a nice warm summer weekend? I am! I am! Around our area, people usually enjoy their weekends on and around the water. We live on Lake Lanier in north Georgia, a great spot for boating and water sports!

No matter what your weekend activities are, I hope they’ll include some good food. Around here summer means it’s time to get out that barbecue grill and fire it up.

So, what will it be for your family? Ribs? Chicken? Hot dogs and burgers? Whatever you choose, this strawberry-banana jello mold is a great dish to have alongside. It can be made a day or two ahead and people of all ages just love it.

Now you know that I would normally call this a “congealed salad,” right? But since that term seems to really confuse folks who didn’t grow up in the deep South, I’m changing it up just this once. Jello mold, congealed salad, call it whatever you like.

You can make this vintage southern recipe in a mold or a casserole dish. Round, square, or rectangular. Whatever you have.

How to Make Strawberry Banana Jello Mold

Strawberries and jello in a round dish.

Mix the strawberry jello with 1 cup boiling water stirring until the jello is completely dissolved. Add the whole strawberries. Pour into a mold or bowl and refrigerate until set.

Banana and sour cream layer added over strawberries.

Combine the bananas, sour cream, and pecans. Spoon in an even layer over the first layer. Cover and return to the refrigerator.

Mix the strawberry-banana jello and 1 cup boiling water, stirring until jello is completely dissolved. Add the crushed pineapple with its juice.

Jello and pineapple mixture in an ice bath.

Fill a large bowl halfway with ice and place the bowl with the jello-pineapple mixture on top of the ice. Stir frequently until mixture has cooled and is partially set.

Final layer added to the mold.

Spread in an even layer on top of the banana layer.

Return to the refrigerator to set. Serve garnished with sliced strawberries and fresh pineapple.
