Reviews for Molded Strawberry Salad
"I really liked this. My husband does not like jello salads and liked this one. So it was a win."
"This jello salad is very good. It's festive for the holidays."
"this salad is super yummy! it is not overly sweet like some jello salads. every-time I bring it places people are asking for the recipe, this one is a keeper. making it for thanksgiving tomorrow as it trumps the cranberry jello of the past in my family!"
