Molded salad was my Dad's favorite but over the years I have forgotten this salad's name. Whatever it's name, everyone who tries it loves it!

This is a new and different way to have a light tasting, refreshing salad. Served it for company and everyone loved it!

Good. The kids would not eat it. My husband and I liked it, but it is too rich to eat a lot of and it makes LOT. I would make it again when there are more people to share it.
