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.



I tried this recipe for thanksgiving.. i had over 8 people try this recipe and they all hated it! we voted it as worse jello salad! it tasted like jelled mayonnaise. yuck... It was a waste of my time. On the funny side no one will ever forget this salad!
