I like the combination of flavors in this salad.

Top Review by Annacia

I made a 4 serving diabetic version and simply loved it. I used Jello Lite (sugar free) and 2 tbsp of reduced fat mayo in place of Miracle Whip because I like it better and skipped the salt (it wasn't missed at all. I must say that what really made it excel was the tsp of lemon juice. It intensified the flavor and brightened it right up. I'd go so far as to call this comfort food because my mother and grandmother made a lot of molded fruit salads. I'll be using this again with many different flavors of Jello and types of fruit.
