"I make this salad as a side dish for almost every holiday. (I omit the walnuts as I don't care for them-cook's choice).Everyone who eats it loves it & I've been asked to bring it to other gatherings. I'm wondering if anyone has tried another flavor jello."

"Meh... it was okay, nothing special. I had hoped it would be more creamy, came out kind of stiff."
