Golden Gelatin Salad Recipe

This was one of my favorite salads that my grandmother made about 40 years ago. I always looked forward to going to her house because her food was so good. I make this often in the fall. The color and flavor seem to blend in with the season. -Mrs. Daniel Leaman, Lancaster, Pennsylvania
