Apricot Salad

This is actually for last month...

This is my grandma's recipe and I love it. You don't use actual Jello, but gelatin and apricot nectar so it has a stronger flavor and a different texture.

Heat in a medium saucepan:
1 (12 oz.) can apricot nectar
1/3 cup sugar
a few grains of salt

In a separate bowl, soften 1 package gelatin in 2 tablespoons lemon juice.

Add gelatin and lemon mixture to nectar and refrigerate until slightly thickened. Remove from refrigerator and put into an 8 X 8 pan (double the recipe for a 9 X 13 pan).

Fold in 2 sliced bananas, 1 can mandarin oranges (drained), and 1 can pineapple chunks (drained). (The pineapple chunks are optional -- my grandma never puts them in, but I like them.)

Chill until firm. Serve with whipped cream on top.
