    Lennie's Note:

    I first received this recipe when I took Chinese Cooking classes at night school back in 1978. Unfortunately, I have misplaced my notes -- so I found this on the Web in response to a request for an oriental-themed dessert. It is very very close to my misplaced recipe. Prep time includes LOTS of chilling time.

      In the recipe I found on the Web, it says to use the cans of fruit undrained; however, this is not what I remember from my recipe and I would recommend draining them.

      Cut gelatin into cubes, preferably diamond-shaped.

      Nice light summer salad. This is very similar to a recipe my fiancee's father makes, although he makes it without adding sugar to the gelatin (and I think I prefer it that way - there is plenty of sweet in this recipe). I also add pineapple, and I agree that the fruit should be drained.
