“Old Santa would like this salad: it is red and white, just like he is! It's a variation of the good old cinnamon-apple jello salad with a ribbon of enhanced cream running through the middle. Delicious and so easy to make. It's perfect for your Christmas table. Recipe is from Bice's new book, "Quacker Factory Christmas."”
