Whether I make it for a Sunday dinner, a company dinner or a covered-dish dinner, people like the blend of flavor in this salad. The ladies ask for the recipe...the men ask me to make sure their wives get a copy of it!
Our house is on the edge of town. It has lots of room for gardening (my husband, my parents and grandparents, all lived on farms). I'm a second-grade teacher with two boys, 5 and 2, who "help" Mommy cook.
Almost as spectacular as the fireworks, this lovely salad makes quite a "bang" at our July Fourth meal. It's exciting to serve, and our guests loved the cool fruity and creamy layers. This salad really added to my patriotic theme. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Packed with pears, this jolly gelatin salad is a light and refreshing treat. My Mom knew that fruit served in this fun form would get gobbled right up. She also liked it because the bowl looked like a sparkling jewel on our dinner table.
This has been a very popular salad from my recipe box for a long, long time! Before I retired, when my office had a covered-dish-get-together, I was always asked to bring my tangy coleslaw. My family loves it, too.
