This is an old recipe from 1955 -my mom made this often and so now my sisters and I also make , mom is 92 years old in July this year, and lives in her own condo- she doesn't cook as much as she use to - so when we get together for the holiday's or some other special occasion we like to make this fruity salad. Try it see what you have been missing...your children will love it!
