Sometimes I just get inspired by something simple. When I get finished with it, it has a life of its own. :)
This one started with a simple box of Raspberry Jello, and bloomed into a great salad to go with turkey, chicken or just about anything.

Stir constantly for about 2 minutes until jello is completely dissolved. Add remaining 1/2 c cold water, lemon juice and applesauce.
