I was raised with this salad-served with fried chicken dinner on Sunday as well as Thanksgiving and other special meals. It really is a refreshing salad/light dessert. In recent years my mom has made it with sugar-free jello due to diabetes. We also add mandarin oranges to the recipe-if you serve it in a crystal bowl garnished with mandarin oranges-it just comes out so lovely!

Unbelievable!!! I've been cutting back on sweets and was just craving something sweet, but relatively healthy. So, I happen upon this recipe. I followed the directions to a "T" except using low fat Cool Whip and added two cans of mandarin oranges. It made quite a bit, so I made it in a large mixing bowl. It was late in the evening when I finished making it and knew that I had to wait until it chilled for the best taste. I couldn't, I had two small bowls. I stayed up real late and finally it was completely chilled. I just kept eating it. When I was done, the bowl was half gone. So, I took it out of the big bowl (washed it) and put it into a small bowl. In the morning, my DH said "Boy, that didn't make very much." I just gave him a weak, guilty smile and agreed with him. THEN I took the rest in a container to work and ate the rest throughout the day. This is ADDICTIVE! I bought the ingredients to make it a couple of times. What do you think....should I share some this time with my family? LOL!!!
