MY REVIEW

This is excellent!!! I also made it with sugar free gelatin. It is a real treat. I will be making this often this coming season. Highly recommend trying this to anyone!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2011

Our family loves this salad. I make this recipe frequently with two minor changes. I use sugar free gelatin and almost double the carrots. Most of the time by doubling the carrots, I only need to make 1/2 of the rest of the recipe. It is more healthful and filling. You know it is a salad, BUT you feel like you are eating a dessert!
