Molded Mango Salad

For her September 2011 project day, hostess Sugar served this cool & creamy salad, made in a ring-shaped gelatin mold with a sour cream & honey dressing. Besides the jello mold, you will also need a blender.

Here's how she did it:
Mango Molded Salad
Serves 12 - 15

3 - 3 oz. packages lemon flavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water

1 - 16 oz. can mangoes, drained, reserve juice (I used a 20-oz jar from the refrigerated section in the produce area)
1 cup mango juice - from the canned mangos (if needed, add water to make 1 cup)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 cup sour cream
1 to 2 Tbsp. honey

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water.
In a blender, combine cream cheese, mangoes and mango juice.
Combine gelatin and cream cheese mixture. Stir well.
Pour into a 2 1/2 quart mold & chill.
Serve w/ a dressing made of sour cream, sweetened w/ honey.
