Emila Brittain made this for our team party for the East Toronto Dodgers all-star baseball team many years ago; I asked for the recipe and she faxed it to me on May 31, 1996. For a long time, I lost the fax -- but I finally found it! I thought it best to get this here at Zaar for two reasons: the fax has already started to fade badly, and I don't want to lose this delicious recipe again. Emila served it as a salad, but it could also be a dessert. Please note that the time to prepare doesn't include the chilling time.
