Strawberry Delight Jell-o Salad

My daughters coach hates chocolate.
(I know, she is crazy right?!) 
She would always ask me to make her this, as strawberries are her favorite.  I would just call it jell-o salad, but her would call it "Strawberry Delight Jell-o".  So Brittiany, this one if for you!
These are what you need.  Now lets get started.  I like to put the pineapple in the freezer for an hour.  That way it helps to get the jello to set up quicker.  I froze the Strawberries earlier in the Summer.
 1-6 oz package of Strawberry Jello. Cook with 1 cup of boiling water.  When the liquid is clear.  Remove from heat and add 1 cup of ice cold water.
Add frozen sliced strawberries, let them thaw.
Add diced Banana and cold pineapple.
Pour half of the Jell-o mixture in a 8X8 pan
Pictured is a 9X13 pan.  
I doubled the recipe. we were having a big group. 
With everything being cold, it will set up quickly.
Put in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.  It should be firm enough to spoon over the sour cream.

I know you might be thinking... Sour Cream?  But with all the sweetness of the fruit and jell-o.  It really adds a nice flavor!

Spoon over the other half of the Jell-o 
over the sour cream.  
Place in the refrigerator to set up completely.
