My Aunt Nannette shared this smooth and refreshing salad as a convenient do-ahead dish. The mango and apricot flavors go well with pork, chicken and beef. —Debra Sult, Chandler, Arizona

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) diced or sliced mangoes, drained
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened and cubed
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) lemon gelatin
  • 1 package (3 ounces) apricot gelatin
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Optional: Fresh mint leaves and cranberries


  1. Place mangoes and cream cheese in a food processor; process until blended.
  2. In a large bowl, add boiling water to gelatins; stir 2 minutes to completely dissolve. Stir in cold water, then mango mixture. Pour into a 8-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray or a 2-qt. serving bowl. Refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours. If using a ring mold, unmold onto a serving plate. If desired, serve with mint and cranberries.
