This recipe has not been proof read. As I read it, it says 2 pkg green jello, then next line two pkg lime or lemon jello. You do not put 4 pkg jello in the top layer. This thing is like rubber and the flavor discusting when you can get past the olives which I love.

I can't even wrap my brain around this recipe. Olives and cherries and raspberries? Seriously?

this is the best and i want to be a cheft

We made this with queen anne cherries in the lime jello, put 1 can of cranberry sauce in the raspberry jello, and put cream cheese, pineapple and chopped pecans in the lemon jello, but we DID NOT use green olives! It was delicious, and one of my favorite holiday treats! I have also had it with canned grapefruit in the lime jello, and the cherries in the raspberry, (or cherry) jello, and that was good too, But, NO WAY EVER with olives of any sort! Please give this recipe another chance and leave out the olives!

That sounds delicious, how much cream cheeese and pineapple do you use and do you layer it? You are right the green olives sound gross.

this recipe isn't very clear. You add olives (green) and Bing cherries to which jello? Not to mention that green olives are savory, and have a bite to them, and Jello is sweet. I think this recipe is somebody's idea of a joke. I would not recommend.
