"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."
I love to collect recipes for all kinds of occasions. This sweet gelatin salad is one I often make for Christmas, decorating it with halved red candied cherries for "holly berries" and green candied cherries cut into "leaves".
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.
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
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.
Even people who don't like rhubarb have fallen for this dish! The deceptively simple-sounding recipe does not prepare you for the delicious flavor of the finished product. With its sweet-tart flavor, it's a lovely addition to a tradition festive dinner of a buffet supper.
Although I live in the city now, I was born and raised in the country in Wayne County, Ohio. Our county and the neighboring one, Holmes, had a high Amish population, and it is from one of my Amish friends that I received this recipe. It is traditionally served at weddings in some Amish circles.
