Every gathering I go to I'm asked to bring this delicious salad/dessert. People ask for this recipe all the time and are amazed at how simple it is. Always a first rate covered dish choice. It's a hit with the kids as well as the kids at heart! Can be made fairly fat-free or sugar free without losing any flavor.
