    Mary Scheffert's Note:

    This is the original Jell-O Ribbon Salad, as published in the Joys of Jell-O recipe book that my mom has had--probably since the 1950's. The holidays & other special occasions just wouldn't be the same without this dish on the table!

      I wanted a new Jell-O Salad recipe this year and I was so happy to find this. My mother made it for Christmas years ago but unfortunately I did not have her recipe. It tasted exactly as I remembered it and my grandkids loved it. Thank you.

      My absolute favorite jello "salad" -- it's really more of a dessert with its sweet, creamy texture. Even with the extra effort, I make it a few times a year.
