This year will be different because of the global pandemic that’s affecting all of our lives, so I have collected recipes for snack foods to serve at your Fourth of July celebration.

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Salad is a variation on our Lemon Gelatin Fruit Salad. I chose not to refer to this variation as a fruit salad because, frankly, there wasn’t a lot of fruit in this combination.
