“This is my grandma’s recipe,” writes Paula Ptomey of Porterville, California. “My mother makes this salad just about every year during the holidays. It has a spicy cinnamon taste that is really good. Even my daughter, who is a picky eater, likes it.”

"This is a WONDERFUL jello salad! My great grandma would make this for golden key potluck and all holidays. Try subbing the H2o with seven up or a lemon lime soda"
