"This has been a favorite of the whole family since it was first published. Every time we make for some gathering, the bowl ends up empty and someone requests the recipe. Well, some family members don't like to cook so they just request that we bring it again!!!"

"I usually don't carer for gelatin salads, but this one is a winner! I make it every Easter as a compliment to smoked ham."
