Christmas Ribbon Salad Recipe
Spirits are light at holiday time around Debra Stoner's home--and so are many of the meas she serves. "I make this dessert every year at Christmas," she informs from Carlisle, Pennsylvania. "It's one of my husband's favorites. I slimmed down the recipe by using sugar-free gelatin and reduced-fat topping."
