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

MY REVIEW

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2013

"This is a great go-to recipe when you need something to bring along. I've always gotten rave reviews; the middle layer is especially delicious. This is a fun recipe to switch up for any occasion, St. Patricks Day, etc. I just try not to mix gelatin types, citrus, berry, etc."
