Whenever I make this salad, people comment on its attractive appearance and wonderful flavor. It's a festive side dish that works well for celebrations throughout the year. —Jane Vanderground, Macedonia, Ohio
I found this recipe in an area newspaper years ago. When this festive salad appears at a potluck, folks always come back for seconds...and sometimes thirds! I sometimes tint it with food coloring for the holidays.
The mold I'd used to make Jell-O treats at Easter inspired me to include these unusual fun green "dinosaur eggs" on the party lunch menu. Instant pudding and cinnamon give the eggs a creamy look with speckles.

This is a very festive-looking accompaniment to any holiday meal—and it's especially pretty with a Christmas buffet. I usually serve it on a cranberry-colored glass serving plate. We were first treated to Russian Creme by a "welcoming family" when we became members of our church. Since then, it's become a holiday tradition in our household.
"Working in food-related jobs over the years, I've collected lots of delicious recipes like this one," reveals Janice Todd of La Crosse, Wisconsin. "This fluffy fruity dessert has old-fashioned appeal."
