Great Jello salad, especiallyin the summer. Can even be used a cool, creamy dessert. Everyone loves this great salad. I sometimes add a small can of mandarin oranges as well.

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!
