Get in the swim with this refreshing cucumber-lime molded salad, a hit at my theme party! Any fish or shell-shaped mold would work well for this salad, but if you don't have one, you can improvise with common pan shapes as shown.

I make this recipe often, because I'm regularly asked to bring it along for potlucks. This dish can be served as either a salad or a dessert. And, preparing it a day ahead makes it taste even better!—Mildred Livingston, Phoenix, Arizona
My daughter, Katherine Beth, has requested that her grandmother, Thelma Bell, make this sweet rick gelatin salad with its fluffy topping for every family get-together. So when she and Patrick Althouse planned their nuptials, this delightful salad was part of the bountiful potluck buffet.
This refreshing salad has two layers - a pretty pink bottom that includes sour cream, and a ruby red top with strawberries and pineapple. For years, Mom has included this salad in meals she prepares for our family.

This tempting gelatin salad has a big cherry flavor and a fun zing from the cola. My two small children are always happy to see this salad on the table. We think it tastes great with or without the whipped topping.
We live in the high-mountain country of central Idaho, where the cool climate is idea for root crops like beets. This beet recipe came from a friend many years ago, and it remains one of my favorite party dishes. It's a particularly colorful and refreshing salad to serve at a ladies luncheon or as a tasty complement to a meat dish.
"I like to take advantage of gelatin mixes and pie fillings to make colorful salads that can be prepared the day before you need them," remarks Chris Rentmeister from Ripon, Wisconsin. "These fruity squares are great for everyday suppers yet special enough for company."
"THIS SALAD is a refreshing complement to any meal, and it's attractive on the table. Whenever I'm asked to bring a dish to a potluck dinner, I prepare this salad. I often make it for friends and neighbors, too. It's always much appreciated."
