What a delicious summer salad or really more like a dessert. I made this to take to a cook-out. It was a big hit with everyone. The 3 layers were smooth, creamy, and tangy-sweet. A beautiful dish. Thanks Nurse Di.

I was looking for a different jelloy-cool whip layered dessert. I found a winner in this recipe. I know the title says salad but I used it as a dessert. The layered look was beautiful. I liked the sweet, creamy, fruit flavor. Real refreshing. Thanks Nurse Di.
