Grandma W went through a period of time making jello salads, like the rest of the country. Nobody complained, trust me! This amazing salad is worth making, and in my opinion, jello salads are making a comeback! Start with this one! (And I have made it with strawberry pie filling, an option not available in Grandma W's day of cherry, blueberry or apple only!)
