My family enjoys this lovely layered salad in the summer with grilled hamburgers. Although I haven't used the recipe long, it's quickly become a favorite. A good friend shared it with me, and every time I make it, I think of her. -Susan Kirby, Tipton, Indiana

"I messed up the first time I made this and used a small box of gelatin, so it didn't congeal as it should have. So I just mixed everything together. :) Had to eat it from a bowl, but was still good. I did it right the next time. Very good. We have had it several times since."
