These parfaits are a refreshing fruity treat, and you can use whatever flavor of gelatin you like. Because it calls for canned fruit, you can rely on it as a tasty dessert anytime of year.—Erlene Cornelius, Spring City, Tennessee
A DEAR FRIEND shared this recipe with me over 30 years ago, and it has appeared on our table frequently all these years.
It's rich tasting, plus the touch of red maraschino cherries makes it a real treat for the holidays or any special occasion.

This salad is among my favorites for special dinners. I love to cook and experiment with recipes, and I came up with this one after trying different combinations of fruits. The tangy taste is nice and refreshing.

This was one of my favorite salads that my grandmother made about 40 years ago. I always looked forward to going to her house because her food was so good. I make this often in the fall. The color and flavor seem to blend in with the season.

Eye-catching in Christmas colors, this dish looks deliciously decorative on the table. Its combination of fruitiness and nutty crunch is surprisingly simple to create. —Arline Wertz, Millington, Tennessee
We enjoy this salad in the spring with fried chicken. It's also good with turkey or chicken casseroles during winter. I even served it at Thanksgiving instead of a Waldorf salad.
I began cooking when I was 8 years old. My parents did the farm chores before breakfast, so I decided I'd surprise them one morning by making biscuits while they were outside.
I ended up with the dough on both hands that just wouldn't let loose—I can still see my mother's big grin when she came in and spotted me!
We try lots of cranberry recipes, and this one is always requested when we have family get-togethers at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's also been a favorite dish at every church potluck I've taken it to!
