    This gets high marks for ease of preparation. I found it a bit sweet, and there is no way to really reduce the sugar. What I did was to add the juice of one lime after removing the pan from the stove. This added a little acidity that goes well with the other ingredients.

    This is a very fast and easy recipe. The balance between sweet and tart is almost perfect. However, it's a little tricky to rate because 2/2 of my family members loved it/hated it. My youngest son didn't like the yogurt-like texture and my husband said he doesn't like "stringy things" (pineapple) in his desserts. My eldest son and I would eat it again.

    I have seen many copies of this recipe using all sorts of flavors of jello (be creative!). I've had orange and I just made orange-tropical fusion(cherry, orange, pineapple) which is very yummy. It's so nice to have such a yummy treat from something so easy to make. I would recommend this to anyone. Again, be creative with the flavors and it doubles easily for potlucks and get togethers.

    A nice simple salad, yet very tasty.

    This was a pleasant surprise. I loved the picture, and just had to see if it tasted as good as it looked. Much to my surprise it did. I doubled the recipe so as to serve it as dessert for a big family gathering, and I did not tell them it had buttermilk in it until after they ate it. Everyone raved about it, and then I told them the ingredients. Everyone wanted the recipe. I love surprise recipes like this. I expecially liked your picture presentation.
