Orange Lime Gelatin Ring Recipe

Orange Lime Gelatin Ring Recipe

Red grapes tucked into the center of a molded gelatin ring accent the tangy taste of lime, orange and pineapple in this colorful salad. It's festive enough to serve guests and goes perfectly with ham or pork roast. Plus, it's cool, tasty and easy to prepare! —Janice Purdue, Naples, Florida

"SAVED recipe. A beautiful presentation picture! I like another reader's idea of using blackberries in place of grapes. Quite a novel idea!! K."

"Okay, I made this for Easter dinner. Rave reviews by all. Did add some toasted chopped pecans to the mold, because I'll add nuts to meatloaf if I can ;-). The sweet/tart flavor of the gelatin was refreshing, and I added blackberries, so the dish did look like a sunflower. Oh, I almost forgot...I used fresh oranges, supremed instead of canned fruit. It just seemed appropriate."

"Just a thought here...if you substituted blackberries for the red grapes, it'd look just like a sunflower! I'll rate again after I actually make it, but I'm sure it'll be yummy!"
