Strawberry Jello Salad in a Mold

Looking for a quick and easy dessert recipe that will impress your guests? Try this strawberry jello salad in a mold! It’s made with only 5 ingredients, and it’s super simple to make. It’s the perfect dessert for any occasion!

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


  • 6 oz. strawberry Jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 16 oz. package of frozen sliced strawberries, partly thawed
  • 15 oz. can of crushed pineapple, drained very well
  • 8 oz. sour cream


  1. Pull the strawberries from the freezer and allow to slightly thaw.
  2. Mix the Jello with the boiling water, stir until dissolved.
  3. Drain the pineapple. I press the water out of the pineapple in a metal mesh strainer. 
  4. Add the strawberries and pineapple to the Jello mixture.
  5. Pour half the mixture into the mold and refrigerate until firm.
  6. Spread the sour cream on top of the Jello in the mold.
  7. Then top with the remaining Jello mixture and refrigerate until firm.
  8. Remove the Jello salad from the mold by dipping the bottom of the mold into hot water for 10-20 seconds. Score the edges with a knife. Place a plate on top of the mold and turn it over to let the Jello salad fall out.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!


  • The star mold I use is a 5-cup mold.
