Reviews for Spiced Peach Salad
"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!!"
"This is truly an awesome salad. Very enjoyable to make, even better to eat. Am considering **doubling** recipe and take to a family picnic this summer."
"Made it several times for friends and for church groups. It is a hit no matter the setting."
"Turn this recipe into dessert by topping with whipped cream."
"I liked this salad. It's yummy tasting, pretty, and I thought easy to make. I used peach gelatin. Thank you for the Editor's Note - it helped."
