As light and pleasant as a summer breeze - that's how I would describe this sunny salad. With oranges, grapes and pineapple peeking out of every spoonful, it's a fun, fruity addition to any meal.

Chilled peach pie is a delectable change of pace from the traditional baked fruit pie. With its peachy gelatin filling sandwiched between layers of fluffy cream, this pie slices beautifully and always draws compliments.

Classic ribbon gelatin salad gets an up-to-date makeover with this tropical treatment. Cream of coconut creates the creamy layers in these showstopping parfaits. I like to surprise my nieces and nephews with this Jell-O mold done in neon colors. —Dan Kelmenson, West Bloomfield, Michigan
Besides being wonderfully tasty, this refreshing salad is very pretty, too! A light layer of cream cheese and sour cream contrasts with the rich red fruity gelatin. It makes a delightful side dish for a turkey dinner.

This refreshing dessert has a rich shortbread-like crust with a creamy center and pretty red gelatin top layer. It’s easy enough for everyday, but cheery enough to dish up for guests, too. —Lois Frazee, Gardnerville, Nevada
For a refreshing change from the usual birthday cake, flavor your party with this "fruitful" favorite! Since the treat is so easy to prepare, you'll likely want to serve it for other occasions...or even any day at all!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This recipe was passed down by my mother. We serve it often, but especially at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of course, the green color makes it nice for St. Patrick’s Day, too. With the marshmallows, pecans and whipped cream, the sweet salad can even be served as a light dessert.
I like to cook for both small groups and large crowds. When our entire family gets together for thanks and feasting, it’s a wonderful time!
I've served this refreshing, pleasantly light citrus dessert for years. It is easy to make but looks so elegant. For special occasions, I put it in a crystal bowl to show off its pretty color. —Sue Murphy of Greenwood, Michigan
