Sparkling White-Sangria Salad

To many families, it isn't a holiday dinner without a gelatin salad. This rendition uses Riesling, but for a nonalcoholic version, substitute sparkling white grape juice. Make up to a day ahead and refrigerate. Dip the covered mold into a bowl of warm water for 5 seconds to make the salad easier to unmold.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 slice)


  • 2 none envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups Riesling, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups white grape juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups orange sections
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
  • 3/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • none Cooking spray


Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup wine, and let stand 5 minutes.

Combine 1 cup wine, juice, and sugar in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; add gelatin mixture, stirring until the gelatin dissolves. Place pan in a large ice-filled bowl; let stand 20 minutes or until thick but not set, stirring occasionally. Whisk the gelatin mixture to form small bubbles; fold in orange sections, grapes, and raspberries. Spoon gelatin mixture into a 5-cup decorative mold coated with cooking spray. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Place a plate upside down on top of mold; invert mold onto plate.
