I AM 83 years old and my mother has been gone for many years, but I'm still using her best recipes. She was a gourmet cook before anyone was using that term and before everyone was counting calories. This was one of our family's favorite desserts when I was growing up, and it's just as good two generations later! —Muriel Fay Walton, Kentucky

"Our family, too, has been making this for many years; however, we call it "24-hour salad" as it is refrigerated for that period of time before eating. It is delicious and certainly a family favourite. I often substitute canned mandarin oranges for the oranges and Dream Whip for the whipped cream."
