Took this recipe from an old Joys of Gelatin book. A nice refreshing summer dessert.

My children plowed through the whole dish! Really good, easy dessert. My only caution is to make sure the gelatin is quite thick before folding in the cool whip. Thanks, KathyIBel, for a great kid-friendly dessert!
