Three-Layer Fruit Salad
Joyce Siewert of Greendale, Wisconsin layers bananas, pears and apricots in a loaf pan, then covers them with lime gelatin. Rather than spooning out the servings, she slices the salad to showcase the pretty layers. "Sometimes I substitute canned peaches of fruit cocktail for the other canned fruits in the recipe," she says.
