    This is a wonderful summer dessert, altho I had a slight problem with the bananas wanting to turn brown. The second time, I mixed a little orange juice in the bananas then drained them before folding into the gelatin. It worked, I then used the OJ with the reserved pineapple juice to make one cup for the topping.

    instead of cold water, try 7-up or sprite. I think this is the same recipe that my aunt used to make and it was called 7-up salad. Don't have the recipe book handy.. Try it if you want a little "bite" to your salad...
