Apricot Gelatin Mold

My mother always made this apricot Jell-O salad for celebrations. When my husband and I were dating, he fell in love with this dish and, as soon as we were married, asked me to get the recipe. You can substitute peach or orange gelatin for a fresh summer treat. —Suzanne Holcomb, St. Johnsville, New York

    Our picky 9 year old favorite dish. We make this for all holiday occasions. I found it hard to find apricot jello, so I substitute orange jello and it is delicious!
