This pretty, molded salad was always on my birthday menu. I love the chunks of banana, the cherry flavor and the festive red color. It's ideal for holiday menus. —Joann Jensen (daughter), Lowell, Indiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2008

I made this last week for Thanksgiving and it was great. However, I think it is missing 1 cup of water. When I made it, I boiled the 1 cup of juice/water as directed. When you make gelatin, you need to add a 2nd cup of cold water after adding the gelatin. I did this and it set up perfectly.
