What a delicious jello salad! We loved it. I did have to change in ingredient, since someone must have ate my apricots when I wasn't looking :), but I substituted peaches and it was great. You definately have to plan ahead for this jello recipe but it is worth it. I plan on taking this to my parents house for Thanksgiving this week. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. We LOVE it!!!!
