This salad is wonderfully refreshing for a family gathering. If it's strawberry season, freeze fresh berries and use them in the salad.

I really like this recipe. It did turn out totally different than I expected though. You can cut the angel food cake in cubes but once you mix it all together it really shredds up and does not resemble cubes at all. I only used 8 oz. of cool whip and it was fine. It is a great low fat/low cal recipe. Sugar free straw. jello fat free cool whip fat free angel food cake yummy dessert. Read More

This is a great salad. I've made it with the angel food cake and then once I substituted pound cake for the angel food. Both ways are delicious and different. Read More

My entire family loved this "Salad". I did make a couple of changes though. Instead of just frozen strawberries I used frozen mixed berries and rather than frozen whipped topping thawed I used whipped Nutriwhip. Awesome recipe I highly recommend it for ease of preparation and excellent taste. Read More

This was delicious very light and refreshing! My husband doesn't like jello or angel food cake and he really enjoyed this. I used 3 of the 3 oz. strawberry gelatins and 1 8 oz. cool whip and 16 oz bag of frozen mixed berries and it came out great! Read More

This was so good! I made it for an office luncheon and it was so refreshing. I made it in layers also but still something missing. So I made it again.. This time I kept the strawberries out of the jello. I used a layer of the jello and then a layer of strawberries sliced with sugary juice and plenty of whip cream and cake cubes in layers. YUM Read More

Delicious...I decided next time I make it I'm going to layer the cake strawberry jello mixture (let it set up until pretty firm) and then whipped topping in a trifle bowl. I think that it will look prettier that way. Read More
