This recipe takes time to prepare since each layer must be set before the next layer is added.
Meet the Cook: For years, this salad has been a "must" at family dinners and special occasions. It's as pretty as it is good, so it's nice for serving at holiday feasts besides. My husband and I have three children, all grown, and a granddaughter. -Janet England, Chillicothe, Missouri
Almost as spectacular as the fireworks, this lovely salad makes quite a "bang" at our July Fourth meal. It's exciting to serve, and our guests loved the cool fruity and creamy layers. This salad really added to my patriotic theme.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
A dear friend shared this recipe with me some 30 years ago. My family never seems to tire of seeing this salad on the table.
