Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to make. Very easy to make. Since I hadn't made it before I wasn't sure how it'd turn out so I entered other desserts in my family's Christmas eve contest...but after seeing and tasting how it came out, it'll be in this years contest for sure - since everyone else is intent on baking - this will be a nice cool change. I'm going to play around with the layers a bit though. P.S. - I won 1st and 2nd place last year. Hoping to hang on to the trophy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I kinda liked it. I kinda liked it. Lime is still a weird flavor for me, but I think it gave the strawberry a little tanginess. I still ate the flavors separately when I served it, but all in all, it was good. It was so easy to make it that I was able to rush home on my lunch break from work to get it started, so that it was done setting by the time I got home in 4 hours to take it to a Christmas potluck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was very easy. This was very easy. Instead of placing it in the quart bowl, I just spooned it into wine glasses. The colors were beautiful and it was very easy to make. I ended up with 4 wine glasses that looked great and tasted great. I didn't care much for the lime jello, but it would be easy to use any two jello flavors, just try to not get them too close in color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent recipe. Excellent recipe. I used Lime Jell-O for both layers...because I took this to a St.Pat's Day party. Also, I added pineapple to the bottem layer. It was delicious!!!! I love the Kraft Foods Web Site!!!
