    This salad was very easy and Christmas colorful. Set in a clear or white bowl on a glass plate holding gold balls and gold florals

    Everyone loved this and had at least seconds! May use this as my new jellied salad reciped at turkey time. Made it diabetic friendly by substituting sugar-free jelly powder and sugar substitute (Splenda).
