    I fixed this for a special dinner and everyone loved it. It took a bit longer than 30 minutes to partially set not having cooked much with gelatin I was concerned but it but it turned out wonderfully!

    This salad has just the right amount of sweet and tanginess. It's pretty on the table too. It went over well at a recent family gathering and I've already been asked to make it for the next one.
