Creamy Frozen Salad

Scripture to Live By:
James 1:2-8
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.  For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man,unstable in all his ways.

Food Post: A girlfriend  gave me this recipe many years ago. It  is still one of my favorite salads and snacks as the temperatures climb, as they have this past week.  It is so refreshing and simple to make.
The following is what you will need to make it:

2 cups of Sour Cream
1 cup of sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 banana
1 can of crushed pineapple
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice
1 cup of nuts (walnuts or pecans chopped)
1 jar of maraschino cherries
1 jar of green cherries

Mix 2 cups of sour cream, 1 cup of sugar and 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice in mixing bowl.

Mix well.

Drain the juice from the Crushed Pineapple.

Cut up the jars of cherries,  reserving 9 green and 9 red cherries as garnish.

Cut up the banana  into bite size pieces.

Mix the Crushed Pineapple, cherries, banana and chopped nuts (optional) into the sour cream mixture.  Blend well.  

Put paper liners in your muffin pans.

The mixture makes approximately 18 muffin cups of creamy Frozen Salad.

Using your 1/3 cup measuring cup.  Fill each tin with mixture.

Top with green and red cherries (regular or stemmed)

When they are frozen and you are ready to serve.  Remove the paper and serve on a leaf of lettuce and garnish with the twig of mint. (Let it soften about 5 minutes before eating when removed from freezer.)

or eat them as a snack. Just pull the paper down and start eating anytime.  


Invite a few friends to enjoy with them with you.  

You will be glad you did.  They are so refreshing with a taste of fruit, sour cream and nuts.
