Personal Notes:
The original version of this recipe uased orange Jell-O. I decided to experiment with unflavored gelatin and pineapple orange juice; what a success! This salad is rich, creamy, and full of Vitamin C. You can find pineapple-orange juice in the juice and drink aisle of your local supermarket.
