Sometimes when we have a gelatin salad leftover from a company meal, I end up having to throw the very last of it away. It has not happened with this salad. In fact, I think Ron and I secretly wonder which of us will be lucky enough to eat the last serving. This past week, I wanted the little bit that was left, but I restrained myself so that Ron could finish it off. Aren’t I sweet…hmm… well … maybe…sometimes.
In 2014, a friend brought this salad to our Daily Dozen Prayer Ministry Brunch. We enjoy a meal together a few times a year.
One last thing, I rarely make a molded salad out of this recipe, but for reasons unknown, I did last week. Either way, molded or in a serving bowl, the salad looks almost as good as it tastes. Enjoy!
