I, also, got this recipe many years ago and loved it. Also I add mand. oranges, and usually no nuts. You can make it with sugarfree jello and whip.topping. It is also great with peach or orange jello, or any type. The buttermilk makes it creamy and lite. Try it!

A friend gave me a recipe very similar but w/no nuts, and a small can of drained mandarin oranges. It is easy, most people like it, and can be served w/the meal or as a dessert.
