Reviews for Layered Christmas Gelatin
"This salad is really good. Even though it says Christmas in the title and Christmas colors, my family enjoys it so much I make it all year long."
"I love holiday recipes that are festive looking and can be prepared ahead of time. This one is both! I didn't have strawberry jello so I substituted cherry. It was delicious!"
"Easy to make, Pretty, and Delicious."
"In the early 60's my mom made a 3 layer Christmas jello with lime jello on the bottom, cherry jello on the top. The middle layer had cream cheese, whipped cream, lemon jello, and crushed pineapple. Does anyone have this recipe?"
"Everyone love this at Christmas.."
