With its sunny color and refreshing citrus flavor, this pretty salad is perfect for summer get-togethers. "This is the only gelatin salad my husband really likes," says Cynthia Norris of Winnetka, California.
No matter where I take this attractive salad, I'm asked to share the recipe. With its red and green layers, it dresses up any holiday buffet. I'm a retired teacher who loves to cook-especially dishes I can make ahead, like this one.
My mother always made this for celebrations. When my husband and I were dating, he fell in love with this dish. Once we got married, he asked me to get the recipe from her. You can substitute peach or orange gelatin for a fresh summer treat. —Suzanne Holcomb, St. Johnsville, New York
