I LOVE Congealed Salads but can't have red ones, allergic to red food dye. I really do enjoy Mandarin Oranges and the taste of lime. Great combination. This recipe I collcted from Group Recipes. Put this on a lovely dish and add some Candied Orange Slices for decoration (I posted that recipe), it's a lovely dish. I decorate with a lot of red uneatable things. For years I have been tagged the Congeal Salad Person in the family at Special Gatherings. This one is added to my list. I believe you will find it very tasty and enjoyable.
