    I found this 8 or 9 years ago and it is truly outstanding. Found it in a free little booklet of recipes at my local market. We enjoyed it with our holiday dinner and the leftover was eaten like a dessert. The picture with my recipe shows 3 thin slices of apple with the tbsp of pineapple over one end of the slices and then a sprig of mint was added to the garnish. My recipe calls for 2 packages of the jell-o, I think with just one box, the 3 cups of liquid would be too much.
