This is a recipe that my sister, Garnet has made for years. It is really good and tasty and can be easily changed from a spoonable dip to a molded salad. Cooking time is chilling time. I decided to add a note here to encourage others to try this wonderful recipe. I recently hosted a wedding shower for my future DIL. I added 2 envelopes of Knox gelatin dissolved in about 1/4 cup of water so that the consistency would be good on Crescent Rolls for sandwiches. It was the hit of the party. Everyone loved it.
