This refreshing salad is my most requested recipe. A touch of cinnamon makes it taste like fresh peach pie. My father-in-law is an especially big fan of this fruity salad, and I know you'll love it, too. -Karen Hamilton, Ludington, Michigan

"What a wonderful recipe, giving the "must have" holiday gelatin dessert a sophisticated flavor, but not so much that kids won't enjoy it as well. We will be repeating this soon!"

"On an easier note, use sliced canned peaches. If using fresh, the gelatin will not set. Just a helping note..."

"Am making this today ~ with just a tad of changes. Using orange jello AND mandarin oranges. Sounds good, huh! I use ground cinnamon, cloves for the whole. Will report back in couple days how it turned out. As with all TOH recipes, am sure that'll be a winner, too!!"
