- Mom would change this dish preparation when she wanted to be "fancy." She would cut the cream cheese into small cubes and roll them in the chopped nuts and would place them evenly around the ring mold and allow the gelatin fruit mix to set completely with the little "nut/cheese" balls enclosed in the gelatin.
- She would unmold the whole mixture on a bed leaf lettuce and drizzle the top with the sourcream/mayo/sugar as a dressing.
