Personal Notes:
We usually serve this at Christmas because of the colors. This has been a family favorite for years.
This is delicious and reheats well in the microwave the next day (only if I have made 2 and there are leftovers).

This came from the "Treasury of Christmas" published by PUBLICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, LTD.
