Debby’s Favorite Jello Salad

26 Dec



SF raspberry jello (4 serving size)

4 wedges Laughing Cow Lite, cut into bite sized pieces

2/3 ounce walnuts, chopped

8 oz fresh raspberries or 1 pear, chopped into bite sized pieces

Make jello according to package directions. Allow jello to cool a bit (or you can use the ice cube method,) and then add in the fruit, walnuts, and Laughing Cow lite. I portioned out the jello into four serving dishes.

Makes 4 servings, about 100 calories each.
