This is an old favorite of our family, and having misplaced the "Joys of Jello" book containing it, am pleased to find it! Sorry someone found it salty, but perhaps some ingredient you used was...

For some reason, the top layer didn't firm up. I also didn't like the fact that the jello was salty.

This recipe is dose not work for me at all.

Very good standby salad. Have made this for years for my kids who are now in their 30's. Originally I found it in an Amish cookbook - always good. Super simple.

This has always been one of my favorite Jello mold recipes! If made correctly, it is delicious. There should be no salty taste at all.

Followed the recipe to a T , but the top layer did not set. 8 hours in the fridge, and still runny. I'm wondering if the fresh ginger caused the top layer not to set up?

Take this jello delicious-ness anywhere: dinners potlucks, BBQ's....everyone loves this dish.
