Packed with pears, this jolly gelatin salad is a light and refreshing treat. My Mom knew that fruit served in this fun form would get gobbled right up. She also liked it because the bowl looked like a sparkling jewel on our dinner table.
Canned fruit and packaged gelatin are the convenient keys to this dish. It's not your ordinary salad. You can vary the flavor of gelatin or the type of fruits to suit your family's tastes.—Annette Self, Junction City, Ohio
Plump blueberries and a fluffy topping star in this pretty, refreshing salad from the kitchen of Beverly Preston. “Mom's blueberry salad was served at every holiday and celebration,” says Beverly's daughter, Sharon Hoefert from Greendale, Wisconsin. “Now, her grandchildren request it.”
These perky gelatin cubes are fun to serve and to eat! I vary the colors to match the occasion - pink and blue for a baby shower, school colors for a graduation party, etc. Kids of all ages snap them up.

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."
