“This is a very pretty and delicious molded gelatin salad that's been a favorite of ours for years. Originally from a Junior League of Jackson, Mississippi cookbook. The apricot and raspberry layers can be reversed for occasions, like Christmas, when the red layer is pretty on top. Prep time does not include chill time.”
