Recipe by Louise Alley
"This colorful holiday salad is a tart, crunchy favorite. The recipe will take several hours, as the Jell-O® must set. Substitute frozen whipped topping for whipped cream, if desired."

I love this recipe. I use chopped walnuts though and skip the celery, and sometimes just a touch of sourcream. I get rave reviews every time!
I omitted the celery and pimento peppers and added marshmellows. It was a hit at Thanksgiving. I will be making this again.
My mother used to make this recipe during Christmas. The only different thing she did to it was substituted maraschino cherries in place of the pimento. It's so yummy, that it's more like a dessert than a salad. :)
It is a very good recipe. What I did in the place of pimento and celery was used walnuts and i topped it with marshmallows which it is wonderful, depending on the occasion i change the flavor, but it is a wonderful treat to have
Very good. My 11 year old daughter made this for me for Mother's Day! She did a great job. I would have left out the celery and added mandarin orange instead. Everyone picked out the celery. It was a bit bitter but we liked the crunch.
My grandmother made something very similar. She used coolwhip instead of heavy cream and cottage cheese instead of cream cheese and drained pineapples as the fruit... fabulous
