Sorry, it was really sweet, it has a nice aroma, and is very apricot-y but WAAAY too sweet for me!

We have loved this recipe since I first tried it! Thank you for making such a wonderful salad....YUM!

Definitely try this one--it is not a typical jello salad. I folded real whipped cream into it, rather than topping with Cool Whip. I took it to Christmas dinner at Grandma's, and not a spoonful was left. YUMMY.

Yummy, I had this at a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, the woman directed me to this recipe on allrecipes.com. I have made quite a few of the recipes from this site in the past, this one is a keeper for sure, I am making it for my family dinner tomorrow, can't wait to see their faces when I tell them it has baby food in it! Thanks again, Cindy!

For some reason, my children wouldn't eat this. That makes it somewhat of a failure in my book, although I thought it tasted fine.

Very yummy. Somewhat sweet, but really good.

I made this for a potluck lunch at work and it was a hit! I personally thought it was a little too sweet, but everyone else loved it and was asking about the recipe.
