Pastel Gelatin Salad

I top my gelatin salad with pretty pastel mini marshmallows to add color to holiday menus. With its creamy lemon-lime base and tangy pineapple flavor, it's a tasty accompaniment to any meal.—Teresa Ries, Santee, California

    Excellent salad. I made this for a family gathering and came home with an empty dish. The only substitution I made was I used pecans instead of the walnuts.

    I made this for work and had some mixed reviews. Lots of people liked it. Some people didn't like the pineapple and the tange. Overall I think it turned out to be a good St Patricks Day dish.
