Creamy Fruit Mold Recipe
Because it can be made ahead, a gelatin salad like this one, brimming with fruit and nuts, is so convenient. This salad (another old standby from the cooking show I watched years ago) comes out of the mold easily and looks very attractive when served. -Shirley Leister, West Chester, Pennsylvania
