Strawberry-Banana Jell-o Salad

My sister Barb gave me this recipe,
in a recipe booklet she made for me
when I first got married.....many years ago....
I have been making it ever since.

We enjoy making this salad for Easter and
then throughout the summer months.
Now that I think about it....
we like this salad at Thanksgiving and
during the Christmas holidays too.
