My sister brought this salad to a family reunion a few years back and I have been making it ever since. Always the first to go at family gatherings or pot luck dinners. We know it as "Refreshing Rhubarb Salad"

I made this for a Mother's Day lunch and LOVED it. I chose it because my daughter enjoys strawberry rhubarb pie! I used fresh squeezed orange juice. This set up beautifully in my Tupperware mold. The texture is similar to one with applesauce and the flavors are intensely fruity! This is one of my new favorite Jello salads. Thanks for posting Krsi Sue. Roxygirl
