Because of the medication he is taking, my DH cannot eat fruit though he can eat veggies. Please don't ask me to explain. Anyway this recipe is getting lots of use. It is a very pretty molded salad with a bit of history in our family. The first time I made it, I made it a day ahead for a function. I had difficulty unmolding it the next morning, however, so in desperation I held the mold upside down under the hot water faucet. Needless to say, out came the jello right into the sink and sliding toward the garbage disposal. I frantically grabbed at it but it was like grabbing a ghost. It wasn't till my hand followed the salad right into the disposal that I came to my senses. Luckily I had time to make and set another salad! Note that cooking time is actually chilling time. Recipe comes from "The Ham Cookbook."
