Apricot Salad

Colorful gelatin salad adds a spot of brightness to any table. It blends well with this holiday feast. We children didn't know if it should be a salad or dessert, with its smooth texture and delicate flavor.—Fae Fisher, Callao, Virginia

    Simple, fast, pretty and delicious, I made this Apricot Salad for one of the desserts I served on Christmas Eve and my family loved it! A definite keeper! I plan to make this for Easter, possibly substituting another flavor gelatin, like peach or lemon, for variety. Thank you, Fae, for sharing this recipe!
