A tangy cream cheese dressing makes this refreshing salad special. I've found it's a big hit at potlucks, whether served as a salad or dessert. It makes a luscious finale on those sultry summer days when baking is out of the question. —James Korzenowski, Fennville, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2010

"This is absolutely delicious! I didn't read the recipe through, and was making it to bring to a party that afternoon, so naturally, couldn't let it chill overnight! I think it chilled for 3 hours at the most, and it was still a hit! This is perfect for those hot summer days!"
