Our striking "flag" salad drew plenty of attention at our Independence Day party. The shimmering stripes are formed with distinctive gelatin layers. It makes you want to salute before spooning some up! —Laurie Neverman, Green Bay, Wisconsin

"Came together easily and everyone loved it. A cut above the typical gelatin salad with the added fresh fruit."

"This is one of the best jello's I have made. Even my husband liked it and he does not even like jello. Great mix of fruit and flavor!"

"This tasted good, but I had trouble with the white layer. I followed the directions to a T but it didn't set up properly. Even after a night in the fridge it was still not quite set. Disappointing, but I will try again.. would be nice in red and green for Christmas."

"This jello salad was both delicious and impressive! We used strawberries instead of raspberries and it turned out fabulous!"
