This was a wonderfully, light ending to our 4th of July BBQ! Everyone raved inbetween mouthfuls. Very simple to put together with clear directions. I do have to say that for convenience factors, I did use cool whip. This will be made again, next time though I might try orange jello with manderine orange slices. Everyone at the BBQ says thank you for sharing!
